Upper Delaware River Report–7/26/2010

Jul 26, 2010 Comments Off by

Tricos have been falling in good numbers over the past few mornings towards the 9 and 10 o’clock hours.  So if you haven’t made it out of the house yet for one of those early morning starts its time that you do cause today and the next few days should great for a Trico fall.  Last night we saw a steady number of BWO’s and an awesome Iso spinner fall around dusk.  Try throwing a size 14 Rusty Spinner if you happen to come across a similar spinner fall like.  Temps today should be about the same as yesterday, staying in the low 80’s, but with far less cloud coverage and a 0% of rain.  Keep an eye to the water for Sulphurs and Iso’s during the day and try to stay in the shade if possible.  If you don’t have any targets, try drumming the banks with a terrestrial pattern like a hopper ant or beetle.
