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:

Yesterday looked beautiful outside when you looked out the window.  When you went outside it was actually pretty cold.  We just looked out the window.  We’ll see some rain today with more coming overnight.  Pepacton Reservoir is still spilling and Cannonsville is at 99% capacity.  It won’t take much for it to spill too.  We may see up to 2″ of rain and snow tonight s click on the gauges for the latest flows.  It looks like we warm up a bit beginning Sunday so hopefully today is the last time we see a “Winter Warning” on Wunderground until the late Fall.
