Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/29/10

Aug 29, 2010 Comments Off by

More sun in the forecast for today, with a high of 88.  The bright sun will likely limit your mid-day surface activity, but the mornings have seen decent action on tricos, and the evening hours, just before dark, have been fishing well also.  Primarily, there have been small olives on the West Branch and good white fly and iso action on the Upper Main Stem late in the evenings, with decent spinner falls as well.  Be prepared for flying ants as well; we suspect that sometime in the next couple of days we will see another good push from that hatch.  Temperatures for now, are looking good on the Upper Main, but keep your eye on the gauges because the temperatures are likely to rise with the warmer weather and lower water levels.
