The Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 10/27/10

Rivers are up slightly today from last night’s rains.  Water clarity does not seem to be affected by the additional water.  Temperatures have risen slightly, but remain favorable. Nymphing and streamer fishing have been the most productive according to reports, and there has been some occasional surface activity.  Olives and caddis, for the most part, are the bugs of choice. Rivers are in great shape!
