Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/24/10

Releases were dropped yesterday, but with all the rain, water levels spiked for a few hours before slowly receding again.  Feeder streams and run-off are contributing to the murky water conditions that we have now, and this will typically slow the fishing action down a bit.  Depending on the amount of rain that we get today, the water levels should continue to drop, and the clarity will start to improve over the next couple of days.  The lower West and the upper Main Stem had some bug activity yesterday but very little action given the worsening conditions as the day went on.
