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:

We woke up to a little snow on the ground.  There is still a lot of runoff working it’s way through the system.  Pepacton Reservoir is still spilling.  The air temp will hit 42 degrees today and the wind will be from the North 10 – 20mph.  Wunderground is predicting 2″ of rain and snow tomorrow into Saturday.  That will keep the flows up and the water temps low for a bit.  The high water, cloud cover, and low nighttime temps have kept the water temps from climbing too high during the day.
