Upper Delaware River Report — July 2, 2010

The fishing has been very good the past couple of days and should only improve with the recent release from Cannonsville Reservoir, which has more than doubled yesterday’s flows on the West Branch.  Despite the high release rate, your best fishing will still be on the Upper West Branch today.  After the water temperatures further downstream start to settle, giving the fish and bugs a chance to adjust, many more opportunities along the Delaware River will open up for anglers and give the crowds a chance to spread out.  Today’s forecast shows that it should be another cool and sunny day with clear skies.  Tomorrow should be much of the same, with some clouds and a slight chance of rain expected in the morning.

This water level is perfect for floating, and doing so with one of our experienced guides will give you your best opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime.  To read more about our guides, view their profiles on our website or contact us if you would like to book a trip.  We hope to see you this holiday weekend!
