Upper Delaware River Report– June 16, 2010

Jul 16, 2010 Comments Off by

Today looks like it is going to be a fishy day.  The flows are up; Cannonsville released 557 cfs this morning, making the river floatable again and our guides anxious to get on the water. With overcast skies in the area much of the day today it should be a great BWO day.  Additionally this morning there were plenty of Tricos spotted on the lower West branch which once again makes fishing mornings very worthwhile. Yesterday on the water we most of our success on size 20 Sulphur Emerger’s, size 12 2xL Iso’s, and Rusty Spinner’s from size 22-10.  The recent trend in hatches has brought bugs between 12-1 pm and depending on your location could potentially last till dark.  With the extra water, the next few days should also bring success if you feel like hitting the banks with streamers
