We are not far way from terrestrial insect season here. For now be sure to carry ant and beetle patterns any where you plan to fish the river. Use them along grassy banks, overhangs, and dry slopes. Flavs are still active on the upper river. PMDs are decreasing in size are now down to size 18s and 20s but numerous throughout. A few brown drakes are left on the upper river. Don’t overlook damselfly adults especially on slow reaches of the river such as in Harriman State Park. Say goodbye to the big stoneflies for this year, but get ready to break out those hopper patterns!
