The BK has 20+ inch wild browns and plenty of bows in the 18-20" class. I would like to know if there are better rivers for that size fish when the WB, EB, and Main are too high to fish. It looks like the upper D system is rounding into shape. There is rain forcasted in the next week or so so we will have to see what that does to the flows and releases.

Based on current flows and probable spillage, ID pull the plug on your trip. Push it back 1-2 weeks. As much as it might suck, it's good for the system.

And next might be iffy too. Looks to be clouds and rain in the extended forecast... but it doesn't appear to me than drizzle. If any of the possible t-storms do develop, it all depends which valley it hits and how long it sits there. Quite often, the WB gets nailed but the EB and BK and untouched or vice versa. You plan should be to be flexible and willing to change location more than once.

Side note is the temps are creeping up and should be just about perfect for Parallels and Hendricksons. Depending where you go, caddis too

Yeah i noticed that about the long term forecasts, but like you say thunderstorms are so unpredictable who knows what will happen. At least there are no big rainstorms predicted so hopefully we get lucky and dodge the thunder/downpours.

I think we are going to book a guide for Thursday to float then wade fish fri and sat. So i figure thurs we will be good as long as it not crazy high. Then the next two days i am willing to be flexible. I dont know my way around up there too well but i am willing to move and explore or do whatever i gotta do. I dont know one spot from the next but i got Weamers book and theres plenty of public access so if i have to i will just move around and hopefully find some willing fish. Really wanna get my Dad into some fish more than anything else so that will be my primary focus. Hoping we can have a good day with the guide on day one, learn some things and that will take the pressure off of the next two days

They were releasing water because a very high inflow was expected and indeed happened around 3/25 from above the reservoir.
You can plug in the dates you want the information for and it will show the graph. Trout Creek and WB Del. are the 2 gauges above the reservoir you want to look at for those dates.

Right now, the tailwaters are tough to wade. The bkill looks perfect...

Moon,
If you're there Sunday, look us up at Capra/ UD Inn. I think we'll be heading to river around 9:30-10:30. There's always a possibility of intending to launch at 9 and not getting it wet until 12:45. Lol

Should be a grey Eddy and white Stealthcraft in the lot. Feel free to load the coolers with beer.

What in the world are they doing on the WB?
It recently dropped from 1200 to 400 CFS.
And now it's up to 3000 - all within 24 hours!

Not related to dam control, rather torrential rain up in the Catskills last night. Check out the Beaverkill gauge (below). 400+cfs > 4000+cfs

More rain coming late in the week, probably a washout for up there this coming weekend.
