    Re: early season fishing blues

    its still pretty high over there and the willo had a super tough year last year ,but if you gotta get out, I hear where your coming from. Get off at exit 96 on rt 17 and take a right off the exit ramp. Take the next right at the stop sign in town and you'll end up driving paralell to the willow a few miles down that road, where elm hollow brook dumps in. I'm waiting til opening day to head up there ,but good luck. If I were you I would fish Hazel pool, which is on the same road a couple miles downstream off hazel rd. Lots of fish in there and an easy pool to wade.
    The lower West Branch from the gamelands down is open ,but thats still over 2000 cfs so its too high to wade right now. Its coming down nicely and should be perfect once things get going

    Re: early season fishing blues

    when that beaverkill gage is anything between 300-600 you can count on the willow being in nice shape ,but the bkill dropped more than I would have thought today so it will be plenty wadable tomorrow. The biggest thing is all the water looks great now with the water up ,but last summer things were real low and warm over there. Fish definitely held over, but you'll want to focus on larger pools to make sure your fishing over fish.

    Trout fever,
    Fly 14 gave you some great advice.
    hazel is easy fishing and the fish shouldn't be to picky this early. I also like barnharts, make a right after getting off 17 go through town and make a left at the blinking light go past junction pool and a bout a half mile down the road on the left you will see a sign for barnhart's. park walk thru the meadow to the river. fish down stream which starts the no kill section.
    You still going up opening day. I would hate to have to drink that whole bottle of Jameson myself.
