Upper Delaware River Report–8/4/2010

Aug 04, 2010 Comments Off by

This morning Cannonsville Reservoir increased its release again to 965. With the current release from Cannonsville you may be better off if you have access to a drift boat, Wade fishing can be challenging at these levels. If you are going to be wade fishing move slow and make sure that you have good footing before making that next step.  Today, the forecast is calling for a high of 90 degrees with partly cloudy skies.  While the clouds might provide some relief from the heat, remember to stay hydrated and cool.  The clouds might also provide some indication of what’s going to be hatching today, with the overcast skies there is a good chance that BWO’s will be coming off in good numbers.  When you hit the river today bring dry flies, streamers, and terrestrial patterns with you, as all 3 have turned good fish in the past few days.
