Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report; September 17, 2010

Today’s weather and river conditions should make for decent fishing action today.  Partly cloudy skies and favorable water temperatures throughout the West Branch and upper sections of the Main Stem is what we are looking at going into the weekend.  The river is still stained from the fall turn-over of the reservoir, but certainly fishable.  It has also come up since the release increase this morning.  Streamers will likely be your best option, but keep an eye out for surface activity as the day goes on.
