Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report July 31, 2010

Jul 31, 2010 Comments Off by

The Cannonsville Reservoir continues to give us water this morning. Stilesville is up to 790 cfs this morning making the West Branch floatable from top to bottom. With this volume of water in the river, water temperatures should hold steady the length of the river the entire day. There is a good chance that the cooler water temperatures will help encourage the hatch action as well. Today’s forecast shows sun through much of the day, if there are no fish rising, streamers on the banks would be my first pattern of choice. Wade fishing is not out of the option; however there may be a few deep spots that carry heavy current so use caution if fishing by foot.
