The Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 9/14/10

The fishing has picked up throughout the entire Upper Delaware River system as of late.  Olives have been the predominant hatch on the West Branch and have been out in good numbers on both the East Branch and the Main Stem as well.  Iso’s and white fly spinners on the Main Stem have produced most of the action on those sections.  Streamer fishing has also been very productive with the off-color water conditions.  Temperatures are pretty good throughout, but with today’s weather being mostly sunny, this morning and later this evening will likely be the best times to be on the Main Stem, East Branch, and lower West Branch.  Temperatures on the rest of the West and the upper East should be most favorable.  High of 68 degrees today.
