Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report

WEEKEND OUTLOOK We are now at about the midway point of summer. So far this summer has been a real summer with little rain high daytime air temps and some serious humidity at times. This weekend however the forecast is for the current heatwave to break a bit. There is a chance of rainfall today and tomorrow and temperatures are expected to drop a bit. The daytime highs over the next few days are expected to be in the mid 70's rater than around 90. This type of forecast could stimulate some good fishing especially if there are extended periods of overcast skies. Currently the fly fishing for trout remains limited to the Upper East and West Branches due to low water and high water temperatures

WEEKEND OUTLOOK This coming weekend is looking like another perfect weather weekend. We are forecast for bright sun with daytime highs in the low 80's. This is about perfect for most river activities. Fishermen should expect to find decent action with light angling pressure in most places. The only exception to this is for anglers specifically targeting trout on the West Branch of the Delaware. Fridays and Saturdays have been pretty busy here as this is the river with the best overall conditions for trout. Below are a few photos of the eagles we see every day on the river With that said the trout action remains pretty good. I have been on the West Branch most days. Recently we have been hav

Over the last week the fishing has been very good for our guests. Our bass trips have been producing non stop action. The Trout trips that went out this week were tougher fishing but we have been steadily taking nice trout. First we'll talk about the Bass Fishing Our guides have been hitting the water daily for Bass. This is family fun time and the action has been hot and steady. Every trip this week has been non stop action. Our guests have been taking smallies on both light spin tackle and on fly rods. The best action is in the afternoons and towards dark. This is the time period where the fish have been super aggressive. Top water baits have been producing exciting strikes. Deeper baits h

WEEKEND OUTLOOK Anglers planning to visit the Upper Delaware and Catskill regions this weekend should find some decent weather. We are expecting air temperatures in the upper 70's. There is a slight chance of a quick shower on Saturday. The rest of the weekend is forecast for bright sunshine. Over the last few days our guides have been switching between Trout and Bass fishing. Summer is a rewarding time for all of us as we spend a lot of time with young anglers who are just getting their feet wet. Below are a few shots from this week. I had Ben and His Dad Scott out for their first Delaware River Bass trip. Ben is a natural and took both Bass and Walleye on his first float. Currently visi

Over the last few days we have had some cooler weather in the Upper Delaware. This weather change also brought us a nice refresh of rain water. Over a few day period thunder storms were active all around the region. This week all of our rivers are flowing a bit higher than last week. Currently visiting fishermen have a lot of options in the Upper Delaware. The East and West Branches are offering Reliable but challenging match the hatch dry fly fishing. Nymph fishing is also very good at this time. The Lower Delaware and our ponds and Reservoirs are now in prime condition for Smallmouth Bass fishing.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK This weekend we should get a break from the very hot weather we've had the last few days. We are forecast for a cooling trend that should bring us some cooler nights and daytime highs only in the 70's. There is also a chance of some light showers both Saturday and Sunday. This overcast weather could produce some nice dry fly conditions. Currently the Trout fishing is very confined to the Tailwaters. The West Branch and only the upper section of the Main Stem have good conditions. The East Branch also has good but challenging conditions down to East Branch. Over the last few days our guides have been finding our guests some great action. Below is a recent photo I took on the

Happy Independence Day! So far the Holiday weekend has brought our guests excellent fishing. Most major Holidays bring a big increase in visitors to the region but not fly fishermen. Over the last few days the rivers have been virtually empty of drift boats and anglers. Most all of the river traffic has been with canoes and kayaks and they have minimal impact on the Trouts daily routine. Over the last 2 days our guests have had non stop action with both nymphs and dry flies. The nymph action has been steady. Most every riffle is producing a fish or two. We have been getting a nice mix of Browns and Bows with most of the nymph fishing falling into the 12" to 15" size range. Below is one of m

WEEKEND OUTLOOK This weekend anglers visiting the Upper Delaware and Catskill region will find some great summer weather. Throughout the Independence Day Holiday weekend we are forecast for bright sunshine with daily air temperatures in the low 80's. In the coming days visiting anglers can find a lot of opportunity for both Trout and Warm Water Species. Right now the Trout fishing is very challenging. This is normal for summer as low river flows, crystal clear water and smaller insects dominate the day. For our guide staff summer is a laid back time. Most days we are Trout fishing from late afternoon until dark with our guests. Currently the action is on the Upper East branch, Upper West Br
