It’s okay to fish locally.  It’s not okay to travel long distances to fish.  So stay local for now.

We are following the State’s order and are closed right now.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:  https://drc-fly-shop.myshopify.com/

Let’s keep the local pictures going.  Since everyone should be fishing local to their homes send us pictures of your locally caught fish and we’ll put them here on the blog.  Even chubs would be cool.  Email them to flyfish@thedelawareriverclub.com

Today’s selection of fish:

The river flows are up slightly so far from last night’s rain.  Not bad so far.  Wundergound shows another 1/2″ falling over the next 1o hours.  We’re coming off a warm night so water temps are in much better shape than yesterday morning.  The wind does not sound awesome this morning at 20 – 30 from the South with higher gusts possible.  But it is going to be 64 degrees which is kind of nice.  The wind forecast looks much more manageable over the next few days.
