Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/20/2010

Looks like today is going to be another sunny day, yesterday we experienced slower action then the previous four days, however we still found some good targets on the West Branch. Main Stem water temperatures are still looking good down to the Buckingham access area. With BWO’s, iso’s and pseudo making up the majority of the dry fly action, keep an eye on the banks looking for large fish pushed out of the center of the river. If the sun keeps fish from rising today, try nymphing them up as this can be very productive on sunny days.
