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:

Not the view we were hoping for this morning

We didn’t get much rain yesterday.  It fell as snow.  It took a long time for it to stick on on the grass in the lower elevations but we have a few inches on the ground this morning.  The hills may have quite a bit more.  Today will be chilly and windy hitting 45 degrees with wind 10 – 15 mph from the North.  Tomorrow we warm up to 58 degrees.  No more snow in this weeks forecast!  The rivers are still high and cold but slowly dropping.  We may see a bump in flows as the snow melts today and tomorrow.
