Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers

WEEKEND OUTLOOK This weekends conditions appear to be very favorable for all fly fishermen. It looks like we will have air temperatures in the Upper 70's.

The Beaverkill, and Willowemoc are in perfect condition for wade anglers. Fishing pressure is non existent. This week anglers have been doing well in both rivers. The Upper and Lower East are wadable as well. The West Branch and Main Stem remain a bit too high for good wading access. Fishing from shore or shin deep is possible in both rivers. Drift Boat fis

The East is also in great shape and producing similar results.

As of now we are expecting some heavy rain storms today that could drop 3/4" of rain on our already wet mountains. This rain is expected to continue on and off throughout the night and tomorrow.
