Upper Delaware River Report – June 3, 2010

Yesterday was another day of mixed reports. Hale Eddy reached 62º while the East Branch and the Main Stem both hit the mid 70’s mark. Many anglers had success on the upper West Branch where water temps are staying fairly cool. During the sunny parts of the day, try to concentrate on shaded areas of the river where the fish will not be feeding in the direct sunlight. Fishing early mornings and again late in the evening will produce the best action, as air and water temps will be at their most ideal during those periods. Although it is only early June it is important to continue monitoring water temps as they are creeping up to dangerous levels on the Main Stem and lower East Branch.
