Spring

Post by Eperous » Tue Apr 09, 2019 9:28 am

Been a tough start to NYS trout season, at least for me... :cry: the Neversink is ripping and many Esopus watershed flows are icy cold...

Yesterday I finally managed a couple small wild browns, but better than that.... saw my first Quill Gordon of 2019... conditions will only improve...

Hey Ed, was that on the Sink or the Esopus ? I usually don’t see Gordon’s too much on the Neversink is why I’m asking , thanks :)

On a very cold Esopus TRIBUTARY.... I've fished the Neversink twice so far, the first time missing a nice brown on a streamer. the second time drawing a goose egg in high cold, snowmelt, reservoir spill waters... typically I love the Neversink early, but once NYC's reservoir starts spilling cold water, and flows JUMP UP, I struggle until conditions settle down....
