The Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 9/6/10

The rivers were fishing pretty well yesterday.  There was good white fly spinner falls a few miles into the Main Stem that had fish up and feeding.  The West Branch had a decent streamer bite, white being most productive according to reports, along with a really good amount of Olive spinners late on the lower sections.  There was also a scattering of caddis and flying ants throughout the middle of the day.  Flows have been lowered to just under 700 cfs, but levels are still floatable and fair for wading opportunities.
