5/18/2016 Tenmile Fishing Report

Matt here and pretty pumped for the local fly game.  The Tenmile river showed signs of an early year about a month back when the air temps were way above average and the rivers were very low.  Since then colder nights and rain has put mother nature back on course.

I spent four hours on the Tenmile last night and lets just say the river is fully awake.  Many smaller stocked fish were splashing around chasing emerging caddis and sporadic mayflies.  This activity was focused on the smoother water with some pace to it.

The larger fish were sitting below the riffles in between the nymping runs and dry fly pools.  The bigger fish did not have to show their noses and were gorging the middle water column hard.  Many small fish on top and some nicer browns below.  The Tenmile is in great shape with both flow and water temp.  GET OUT THERE!

4/23/2016 Fishing Report

Local fishing has begun to pick back up.  We had some great days a week back when the warm weather rolled in.  We then saw a stretch of cold nights that offset the water temps.  The Tenmile and Lower TMA start going good at 53 degrees.  A week back the lower TMA touched 50 which produced fish but water temps dropped back with the cold nights.  FRI into SAT will be warm and with 80’s on Friday and a low of 55 at night...Saturday should produce fish local fish.

The Catskills have been very good to us this week.  Some of the “old guys” fished to midweek fish on the Beaverkill and Willow while others got fish via dry on the East and West of the Delaware.  

The flows are low across the board which has provided great wading access.  See local flows here: http://www.anglersden.net/pages/usgs-river-flow-charts

4/17/16  GUIDE FRANK D REPORT: Locally on the watershed things have quieted down.  The Hendricksons are fading fast, look for spinners in the evenings.  The caddis are hatching so that should motivate the fish.  Water temps are creeping into the lower 50's, but the flows are dropping.  Hopefully we get some rain soon.  Hare and coppers, black and tan czechs all took fish this weekend.  We didn't see any risers even with the amount of bugs on the water.  I always like when the caddis start, its gets the fish feeding opportunistically throughout the day.  Look to use cased caddis, X caddis, and caddis larve patterns along with czech nymphs.  Stay untill dark if you are fishing the spinners.


The Housy should be at a nice fishable level this week, and hopefully the bugs will kick into gear when the water drops to under 1000 cfs.

Good Luck!
