Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/9/10

Aug 09, 2010 Comments Off by

Today calls for Isolated T-Storms, but for now the sky is clear.  Expect overcast skies later this afternoon which will likely produce good hatches and good surface action.  Typically you can anticipate seeing small Olives and Sulphers under these conditions.  Good flows have the river at a great floating level, but means that wade fisherman should be careful.  There were reports of  good fishing yesterday on the West Branch in various locations and today’s conditions should produce good action as well.
