Upper Delaware River Report — June 28, 2010

Today’s forecast looks like we are going to have good cloud coverage for the majority of the day with scattered t-Storms entering the area around 1:00. Today I would expect to see good BWO’s during much of the day, mixed in with the olives there should be plenty of sulphurs, some Iso’s and maybe even a few Caddis. Even with the hot sunny day that we had yesterday the river temps continue to look good on the West Branch. If you are having trouble locating targets but want to stay on the surface, try drumming some fish up using a large Iso pattern in the Riffles.
