Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report

Jul 22, 2010 Comments Off by

Rain overnight has brought higher flows and slightly cooler water all across the board today.  These higher flows, combined with off-colored water and overcast skies, should be a perfect opportunity to bring out the streamers.  Fish them as close to the bank as possible and be ready for a strike.  However, don’t rule out the possibility of dry fly fishing as today could be another awesome day for BWO’s and Sulphurs on the West Branch.  With lower-water clarity you may even be able to get away with throwing flies on 5 or 6X tippet. As always, work slowly and take your time when covering any section of water.
