The Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Club 11/2/10

The rivers have been fishing pretty decent lately.  There has been some surface activity as of late, and the streamer bite has also been decent, along with nymphing techniques.  Olives have been the bug of choice and with today’s forecast calling for sun, there is a good chance of seeing a little caddis activity as well.  Flows are still flirting with floatable levels, most likely limiting your options to the lower West and the Main Stem.
