Both those rivers are blown out, as are all of the other rivers in the area. Could be several days before they are fishable.

Hi, Fished the Ramapo in Jersey today and did very well with a size16 pheasant tail bead head. Fished above the Glen Gray bridge up where the river splits. Little Black Stoneflies were hatching. I started with a GRHear and nothing. Switched to theLBS and did very well. I fished for 11/2 hours and caught 6 Two of them were a good 12 inches and looked very healthy. Water was high but with weight and bead heads got the flies down in the zone where the fish were.. I only fished about 100 feet twice and caught the 6. Did not see any other flies on the water. Started fishing at 1:30 and finished a little after 3:00. I was the only one there and the fished were cooperating. This is my first time out this year and I really enjoyed myself. Again only LBS were hatching and a size 16 Pheasanttail did the trick Good fishing everyone, Bill the mailman

Hello, Just read Catskill flies report for the day and it said that the Forsythias are not blooming yet. Just an old saying and I quote. “ When the Forsythias are in bloom the Hendrickson’s will be hatching”. I don’ know how true this quote is but the Hendrickson’s are starting to show in Jersey and the Forsythias are in bloom. Has anyone else heard this quote? Well that’s it for today. No fishing today because I’m off to the graveyards to put flowers on some graves. Happy fishing, Bill the mailman

Have heard this about forsythia and shad, and since shad and Hendricksons often overlap, it makes some sense to me.

Here on the Battenkill, it is Shadbush and Hendricksons. Hasn't been wrong in 44 years!
