Upper Delaware River Report — July 17, 2010

Jul 17, 2010 Comments Off by

Expect it to be mostly sunny outside today, with a slight chance of clouds and rain just before dark.  The Cannonsville release is up for the second day in a row, currently sitting at 565 cubic feet per second.  These flows make a much larger stretch of the river easily floatable which should help to break up some of the crowds.  Look for Tricos out on the water in the morning and other hatches to start just after noon.  Various sizes of Sulphurs may be on the water, so be sure to key in what the fish are feeding on.  Other flies later in the day may be Olives, Isos, Caddis and Rusty Spinners.  If you aren’t seeing much surface action, try throwing a streamer to the banks in fast water or nymphing the riffles.
