Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report August 3, 2010

Aug 03, 2010 Comments Off by

This morning Cannonsville Reservoir is releasing 944 cfs. With the current release from Cannonsville you may be better off if you have access to a drift boat, Wade fishing can be challenging at these levels. If you are going to be wade fishing move slow and make sure that you have good floating before making that next step. Yesterday we had good action on both dry flies as well as streamers. When hatch activity slowed we threw large stimulator patterns at the bank which picked up the best fish of the day. Although flows have increased slightly, we are expecting conditions to remain the same throughout the day today. If you enjoy throwing streamers or want to cover some excellent water hunting targets, hire a guide for the day and experience the awesome summertime conditions we are experiencing on the Upper Delaware.
