Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report July 24,2010

Jul 24, 2010 Comments Off by

Yesterday was a day filled with showers and heavy overcast skies and turned out to be an awesome dry fly day. Most of our fish landed were on BWO’s, however we did see a bunch of sulphurs on the upper West Branch. Water temperatures look good the whole way down the West Branch. Today they are calling for partly cloudy skies with air temperatures reaching close to 90º. If you can’t find dry fly action you can try throwing streamers or nymphing a good looking riffle. If all else fails try relocating.
