Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/27/2010

Aug 27, 2010 Comments Off by

River levels will be dropping significantly today as Cannonsville Reservoir is releasing 108 cfs this morning. The forecast for the next three days shows plenty of sun with a high today of 75º and reaching the upper 80’s by Sunday. Water temperatures are still looking good on the entire West Branch as well as the Upper Main Stem down to Buckingham access area. Nymph fishing may be the best option for the day, but once the morning fog burns off, look for olives to be the major hatch of the day on the West Branch. The Upper Main Stem has seen heavy hatches of iso’s if your timing is right and we would expect to see a great spinner fall during one of these sunny days that are ahead of us.
