Upper Delaware River Report — June 29, 2010

According to the forecast for the rest of the week, we should not have a day with a high above 80 degrees until Saturday.  Hopefully that weather will help keep the water temperatures down a little as we head into July.  Today should be partly cloudy with a very slight chance of rain.  If it gets cloudy, look for Olives on the water.  Otherwise, continue throwing Sulphurs, Caddis and Isos while looking for targets, or try nymphing while the bright sun is out.  We have been able to get good fish the past couple of days, so now is a great time to be on the water.
