Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/18/2010

Today looks like we will have mostly cloudy skies throughout most of the day. Last night was another good day to be on the water as there were good fish rising on the West Branch. Reports of excellent Iso hatches have been coming off the Main Stem as far down as Buckingham access area. Along with Iso’s other major hatching activity include pseudo’s, summer steno’s, various caddis and BWO’s. Although it seems like a 50/50 draw of whether they fall or not, trico’s have still been in the air nearly every morning. And as always if surface activity is slow, streamers are a great way to pick up large fish during the day.
