Schoharie Creek

Tip of the week 

With the summer heat hatches have become less reliable. Terrestrials are now going to become much more important. Most fish that are looking to feed on this food source will be located in the dee, shady, undercut banks of the river. Try drifting a grasshopper or ant pattern into these hiding places for some explosive takes. Be sure to repeat your efforts with different patterns and sizes because summer fish can be very picky.

Seven-day forecast 

The week will be more summer like than fall like with daytime highs reaching the upper seventies. Most hatches are occurring early mornings or late evenings. These are the best times to fish. Fishing conditions remain very good as we head into fall.
