Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/17/10

Today is supposed to be mostly sunny with a high of 84 degrees.  Yesterday was a great day to be on the river.  We have seen the beginning of the flying ants and they had the river fishing very well yesterday.  There is a good possibility they will once again produce great fishing action for today, but no way of knowing for sure.  Streamers are still providing good action as well. Water levels and temperatures are still looking good, and with the recent drop, it is a little more wader friendly.
