Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware River and Catskill Region

Weekend Outlook It looks like we are heading into another great weekend weather wise. The forecast is calling for bright sun with air temperatures in the low 80's. Great weather for outdoor activities in the mountains. The fishing remains very reliable around the system. Lots of options in our rivers, lakes and ponds for Trout, Bass, Carp and other species. We put a lot of guests on the river this week. Our guides have been keeping their rods bent with Trout, Carp and Smallmouth Bass. Below are a few pics from yesterday. Our guides are dialed in on the action and now is a great time to spend a day fishing! THE SPECIFICS The Trout action remains reliable and summer fishing varies little day t

Turbid Waters Produce After the recent rainfall our guides took advantage of the turbid water conditions. It's been a while since we had floats out that spent the day working bait fish imitations. The fishing has been pretty good but the hot bite will be short lived since most of the rivers are well on their way to becoming clear again. Below are some shots from guide Matt's trip yesterday. Matt had the same crew this morning and has already reported very good action. With the heavier water flows the fish were far less technical during yesterday's dry fly hatches. Below are today's flows. We can expect the fish to be a little more approachable while the water flows remain above the normal su

Upper Delaware Region Weather Update

Local Rivers on the Rise! Last night some substantial rainfall moved through the region. Our very low rivers are now on the rise. This morning all of our rivers are up and running with some level of turbidity. The turbidity level will vary depending on where you are. Expect for the freestones to be the most turbid due to their steeper gradient drop and the higher amount of tributaries that enter these rivers. It should be less on the tailwaters which have controlled dam releases and less tributaries. All rivers should clear up quickly, 24 to 48 hours providing no additional rainfall occurs. This rainfall along with the colder weather pattern should go a long way towards providing relief to o

Summer Heat Wave First off I want to apologize for the lack of information lately. I was away for a couple of days and the trips I have been doing have been starting at odd hours. No time to sit at the computer. In that time period the Upper Delaware and Catskill regions have been in the grip of a heatwave. Like everywhere else in the east our daytime air temperatures have been way up in the 90's. This type of sustained heat is rarely good for fishing. Our guides have been working every day and the story of the week has been much slower fishing. This is the reason that we have been working odd hours. The amount of time that mature fish are active has been shrinking and we have been hitting

WEEKEND OUTLOOK We are now officially experiencing summer conditions all around the region. So far we are off to a fairly normal summer. Hot sunny days and not much rain other than an occasional passing thunder storm. All of the heavy rainfall that hammered much of the east this week completely missed the Upper Delaware. Currently our freestone rivers are running low, clear and on the warm side. The waters of the Lower Beaverkill, Lower Willowemoc, East Branch and Lower Main Stem are all on the warm side for catch and release trout fishing. The headwaters of these rivers are still cool enough for morning fishing. The extreme upper reaches of these rivers always stay cool. The tailwater secti

Summer River Conditions and the Holiday Weekend It's summer now and the river and fishing conditions have quickly changed over to what you would normally expect during July and August. Currently the choices for Trout fishing are quickly narrowing while the opportunities for Smallmouth Bass are expanding. Here is the latest on Trout As is always the case in summer the best action is on the Upper East Branch, Upper West Branch, and Upper Main Stem. The freestones, Beaverkill, Willowemoc and Lower East will be thermally challenged for a while. Currently these rivers are pushing up past 70 degrees on warm sunny days. Anglers should look to fish early in the day and stick to the upper reaches whe
