Upper Delaware River Report – June 6, 2010

Rain overnight has brought higher flows and slightly cooler water all across the board today.  These higher flows, combined with off-colored water and overcast skies, should be a perfect opportunity to bring out the streamers.  Fish them as close to the bank as possible and be ready for a strike.  However, don’t rule out the possibility of dry fly fishing.  With low-visibility you may even be able to get away with throwing flies on 5X tippet.  Also, make sure to take your rain gear with you today, as the chances of precipitation are pretty high throughout the day.
