Upper Delaware River Report — July 18, 2010

Jul 18, 2010 2 Comments by

The sun will be out in full force again, with a high of 84 degrees and very little chance of rain today.  Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for scattered thunderstorms throughout the day, so we are hopeful that we can get in on some of that action.  The Cannonsville release is above 500 for the third consecutive day and water temperatures on the West Branch are looking really good.  Reports coming in are that there are Tricos in the morning on the Lower West Branch and very good Sulphur hatches in the afternoons, with Olives and spinners later on and into the evenings.  If you are out mid-day and do not have targets you may want to try searching with Iso and Caddis patterns or nymphing the riffles.  With these higher flows, streamers can also be a productive option.
