Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/19/10

The river has been fishing very well.  Dry fly action in the past few days has picked up significantly and we are still getting a good streamer bite as well.  Yesterday supplied a good number of small olives and a few flying ants mixed in that had plenty of fish up and feeding.  Today’s forecast is mostly sunny with a high of 85, but water temperatures are good and the evening hours have been cooling quickly.
