The Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 9/8/10

Today’s forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies and a high of 73 degrees.  Water levels have been increased slightly, from 679 to 718 cfs. The Upper Main Stem fished okay yesterday, with some streamer action and occasionally some sporadic surface activity, but keep an eye on water temperatures for today. The West fished very similarly to the Main Stem, and maintains more ideal temperatures at this point in the week.  Tricos in the morning, flying ants and caddis mid-day, and olives in the evenings, with a scattering of Cahills throughout the day.  Isonychia and white flies late on the Main Stem.
