Fishing reports and conditions: 8/10/22 Last night was a nice night on the water air temps were dropping and the humidity moved out, it's a comfortable 61 degrees this morning and no AC needed. Fished my favorite river and the fish were looking up as they ate Sulphers and Spinners, placed two in the net both Browns and missed a few. Bugs on the water were Olives #22/24, Sulphers and Spinners both Sulpher and Rusty in the Rusty size #20. Tailwaters are still the rivers to fish and the upper West is fishing well. When they pulse the West it bring salad down the river so your cleaning your flies alot. Esopus is just to warm for a Tailwater and the Neversink is fishing fair. Seeing some good bucks now and that's usually the Case till hunting season. Today the high will be near 79 degrees, mix of sun and clouds NW wind 5-10 mph.
