Upper Delaware River Report – June 16, 2010

Today should be another great day for fishing, with cloudy skies and showers throughout the morning and early afternoon, and scattered thunderstorms from early afternoon on.  Cannonsville bumped up their release rate 90 cfs to 415.  With this increase, expect the West Branch to hold pretty steady around 500 cfs.  Fish were rising throughout the day yesterday, with good hatches of BWOs and Sulphurs.  If you aren’t seeing rising fish, try throwing an Iso or March Brown pattern along riffles, or fishing streamers in the faster water.
