Upper Delaware River Report — June 21, 2010

Looks like another sunny day on the Upper Delaware River System, highs today are to reach 85º. With Temperatures like we have been experiencing the last 3-4 days, the safe bet would be to stick to fishing the West Branch . The West Branch will have the coolest water temps which should produce bugs and it will also give the fish a better chance of survival after revival. Today is another day where you may want to try nymphing during the heat of the day if there are no bugs or targets. Keep an eye out for caddis and sulphurs during the day today, also make sure that you have a number of rusty spinners with you and a spent caddis pattern could come in handy too.
