|The Catskills have been receiving more than average rainfall this year, which has kept the trout streams in the region high.
A couple weeks ago, a strong thunderstorm cell moved through the area dropping nearly 3 inches of rain. This event brought the river to historically high levels, near 6000 cfs, and heavily stained.
We are stilling watching the water daily, waiting for it to become advantageous to fish again.
With all of the water coming over the top of the dam, reports indicate streamer fishing has been productive, with little hatch activity. Basically turn your clock back to April and try those tactics.
The bright side? The hatches may last longer or come on stronger when the time comes. Be on the look out once the river hits the 1500-1200 cfs mark. If you go, be careful wading.
