Good hatches of bugs have been coming off just about every stream I have fished this year providing good dry fly action. Early in the morning when there has been no hatches we have been nymphing with good success.  I will be up on the West Branch of the Ausable in Wilmington for the month of June if your looking to get out on the water give me a call (518) 495-2965 or email me at paul@paulsguideservice.com
