Warm day -75 after a cold 52 degree start. Managed two nice 14" browns on a cricket and a # 14 black ant on th Willow. Moved to lower no kill on the Beaverkill in the afternoon and picked up a bunch of 11" rainbows(stockers??) on a #16 dark brown iris caddis. Back to the Willow for the evening and a mix of different size and different color flying ants--not a lot of ant but I believe the fish were feeding on them.Can't prove it because I tried several varieties of fly ants,but no success. It was a gorgeous day to be on the river

New York State does not stock rainbow trout.

Thanks. That's good to know.The riffles were loaded with them all around the same size with thick bodies like the Delaware rainbows.

Thanks for the report, hoping to go up this weekend. The rainbows should be wild from the Delaware.

Although who knows about stocking anymore, was surprised to find out a couple of years ago they stock the BK-Willo with brookies for kids fishing derby

every year now.
