Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/31/10

Aug 31, 2010 Comments Off by

Today and the next couple are going to be very sunny, with highs in the low 90’s. Temperatures on the Upper Main Stem and the Lower West are heating up rapidly so be sure to keep an eye on the flows and water temperatures for the next week at least. Flying ants have more or less been the bugs of choice during the middle of the day.  The olives have been out in decent numbers also, and have lasted later in to the evening. Water levels are down and the fish are getting wary so take your time wading or positioning your boat on rising fish. Take ten minutes to do it slow and you should have a better chance.
