    Re: Late Hatch Prediction

    I also say we see some Hendrickson hatches on the upper Delaware system around the 20th. Probably a couple days earlier on the Upper East and Neversink.

    No late hatches this year!

    Re: Late Hatch Prediction

    I sure hope the Hendrickson’s do not appear until mid May as I will be up there for 5 days from 14 May through the 19th. If it the Henriksons then maybe the March Browns will be the ticket. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed. Bill the mailman.

    They've been releasing water all winter, that's been keeping the water temperature moderate. So, Hendricksons should be on time this year, because science.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    You can bet that hatch will be long over by then in any year. The exception is to get as close to the Cannonsville reservoir as you can, because that colder water sees a later emergence of Hendricksons and their spinners in the evenings. Otherwise, you're headed up for the "Tween Hatch" as in in between the Hendricksons and the March Browns.

    Don't worry about it Bill. Your trip will be primetime for any number of hatches. Hendricksons will probably be sparse or gone by then, but March Browns start popping often by late April or the beginning of May. If it warms up fast in May, you could even see some early drakes on the water.

    Also, caddis hatches tend to keep the fish looking up even between the big mayfly hatches.

    Also, who knows what the flows will be like. Maybe you'll be chucking giant streamers in root beer.

    In other words, doesn't make sense to try to be too "scientific" in your planning, because entropy. You'll have fun, almost no matter what.

    Dude, when was the last time March Browns popped in April.

    Do these bugs still identify as hendo's? Middle of May should be good for something on top.

    I hear the sulphur hatch is nearly over already up there this year.

    Two years ago. Floated the lower EB on April 28 and 29 and had great days on MB dries and nymphs. I'm always up there the last weekend in April, and I usually hit the very beginning of the March Brown hatch. But that's on the lower EB, where water temps are higher.

    But the larger point is, no point in trying to say exactly when hatches will start and finish beforehand.

    Here's a question: when did the Hendrickson hatch end last year? Were they still hatching in late June?

    I was fishing Iso’s caddis late June of last year, but finding Hendrickson’s in late June right below one of the dams doesn’t really count. And besides, at that point in the year it doesn’t really matter since I can catch just about any rising fish on a size 12 rusty spinner.

    Huh. Okay, but what I'm saying is, the Hendrickson hatch last year actually went on for many weeks past what the hatch chart says, and not just below the dams. It was a regular topic of conversation on the river and in the shop.. the Hendrickson hatch that never ends...

    And for that matter, most spring hatches last year were late, and some hatches that are supposed to occur weeks apart coincided, creating a bug soup situation. It was a crazy, crazy year up there.

    But every year has a little crazy. The year before, everything was a bit early. That's part of the fun of it. My favorite years are the ones when I keep finding hatches all summer long that are supposed to be done, in places where the fish aren't supposed to be holding, much less rising. Keeps it interesting.

    But look, I totally agree with your last sentence. A size 12 or 14 comparadun will also work in all kinds of hatches if you fish it right. For the lazy, the One Bug doesn't end in late april, it lasts all year long, and I'm lazy as fuck.
