    I wouldn't......he has a dog and several women that follow him around, It's a bit unnerving when you are trying to fish.....P.S. the dog will try to hump you before any of his women...

    Meat flies and sinking lines look to be on the menu this weekend on the tailwaters. Reservoirs are currently spilling, after 2 inches of rain came out of nowhere two nights ago, and there's another inch+ forecast for Friday and Saturday.

    Would be great for the dry fly fishing if that water went elsewhere, but it's equally possible the rivers get blasted again and are unfishable through the weekend. If the forecast holds exactly as it is, my guess is the rivers will be fishable but high and off-color, with the reservoirs spilling. Good for throwing streamers from a boat, not good for much else.

    Ironic that the last two years, the water was too skinny up there to float much of the system, and just last fall the reservoirs were down below 50% capacity. Now we've got the opposite problem. Feast or famine is the new normal.

Going to put a hurting on the fish rising to Hendricksons, do some wade and drift fishing, drink and eat too much, and head back home for work next week.

    Dead accurate. Probably about half of the fish i've caught this year have been netted while a my dog was humping my leg. When he sees you fighting a fish -- that's when he moves in. Can't fish Fri or Sat tho -- my weekend is Sun-Mon... Gonna spend Sunday wrestling my boat out of storage and up to Hancock. Hopefully float on Monday. I had to move apartments this weekend. It was awful. Seemed like all of instagram was on the Delaware hoisting up trout....

    It was a fine week of drinking and eating, but not for fishing except those drifting that had heads popping up. Streamers and nymphs went unmolested most of the week. I had to find all my fish on the Beaverkill this trip. Oh well, as soon as flows moderate, I'm running back for the day (or 2).

    Decent weekend for streamers down on my side - a couple nice fish from the bank and a few more from a banana boat. Highlights were a 21 inch brown and a 5 pound shad. Some other nice browns in the high teens. And a walleye on a streamer on the EB, which was a first. Would have been a great dry fly weekend if flows were a bit lower. Lots of bugs on the river, but the high water kept the fish down and to the sides.
