Upper Delaware River Report–7/21/2010

Jul 21, 2010 1 Comment by

This morning keep an eye out for fish raising to Trico spinners early on the lower West Branch. Sulphurs and BWO’s will continue to be the main flies coming off today. Towards dark if you see fish rising and can’t seem to figure out what they are eating try throwing a large Iso Spinner or even a smaller Rusty Spinner size 20 or 22. Flows continue to be a wade fisherman’s dream with Hale Eddy reading 520 cfs and 48º.  Today they are calling for Scattered T-Storms through much of the day so we are expecting good cloud coverage for the majority of the afternoon.
