OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter one brute of a winter, the hallowed streams of northern NY are at last coming into their own. Memorial Day found water temps finally reaching the 55 degree mark on many of the flows. I would say that most of the north country is about 2-3 weeks behind a normal schedule. With a big snow pack and very cold spring it was very late in April before it melted.

These next two weeks are going to be great barring some sort of heavy rains. Caddis and stone flies were just starting to make some serious effort on Memorial Day.
