Stream Assessments

Anyone know how often the state assesses/surveys, and publishes findings on the health of wild trout streams? I believe the last one was in 2015?

Re: Ok it's cool enough , we can officially talk about trout again

Caught some wild browns and rainbows last weekend on top, early morning outing wanted to be sure water temps were low. Hoping to get back up to the Catskills in a few weeks.

Re: Summer Time Fishing

Well done Brian. I have rusty spinners imprinted on my brain for next trip when Iso's are out, wish I knew to tie one on when I was up there, myself and everyone around me were fixated on sulphers.

I'm running up to the West Branch tomorrow for some tailwater dry fly fishing.
Best of luck to you. I hope your new PB rises to the occasion.
Thanks Mike! Leaving shortly for an up and back.
Brian - How was the up and back?

Re: Musky morning

Thanks for the info Rusty. I should be heading up to the WB in a couple of weeks, hoping mid July is less wet and flows are perfect for wading.

Re: Musky morning

I fished it also this morning. Water was flowing and yes, off colored. I landed and released four on an a bugger, missed a few others, nothing like yours though. Perhaps stocked by a club?

Re: Stream Conditions Today

Thanks all for the updates.

How far back is the down tree, room to pull off and park, don't mind walking? That is where I was planning to go.

Stream Conditions Today

Anyone pass the Musky, FB or SB this morning? Just wondering if they are up and chocolate, guessing they peaked by now. Was hoping to get out on the Musky tomorrow morning. If not looking good, will stick to wild head waters.

Re: Anyone Been Up to the Catskills?

Appreciate the replies. I typically stick to the smaller streams, will tackle the "branches" if the flows allow safe wading.
