Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/15/10

Weather forecasts for today are calling for scattered thunderstorms and a high of 77 degrees.  These are going to be great conditions and should produce good fishing action.  The past few days have been either overcast or mostly cloudy, and have seen a fair amount of bug activity, at least in the evenings.  The streamer bite has been really good, particularly on the West Branch, and yesterday provided good surface action as well with a good variety of insect activity as well.  Olives were out in the best numbers and were also joined by a fair amount of Caddis, some Sulphurs and Isos, and a pretty good number of Cahills.
