Esopus Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

With the spawning Browns now in the stream try using using some larger nymphs and streamers to encourage a strike. Keep drifting the flies through productive areas several times before giving up. Even if the fish are not feeding they will strike do to their territorial instincts.

Seven-day forecast 

The start of this week will be very summer like with daytime highs in the lower seventies. A cold front will pass through in the middle of the week bringing some much needed rain showers. Summer returns once again by the end of the week with temperatures back into the seventies.
