Upper Delaware River Report — July 1, 2010

Today’s forecast is sunny, and you can expect it to remain that way for at least a few days.  There is not a chance of rain in the forecast until next Tuesday.  Water temperatures are looking good, with both the Main Stem and East Branch becoming fishable again.  The Upper West Branch has been the place to be lately, providing awesome fishing throughout the day.  Reports from yesterday were that there was lots of bug activity, with great Sulphur hatches and good Olives and Isos.  A number of people said they had quality fish to cast to the whole time.  Hopefully yesterday repeats itself and it is another great day on the water.
