Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report

April 19, 2015

 

River Flow Table

 

Beaverkill - 1140 cfs.

Wilowemoc - 690 cfs.

Upper East Branch -266 cfs

Lower East Branch - 1550 cfs.

West Branch - 377 cfs.

Main Stem  - 3340 cfs.

 

Yesterday's bright sun and warm temperatures really spurred some heavier insect activity. During the afternoon there were lots of insects in the air and on the water.  This week we should start to see some more sustained surface feeding

 

The East and West branches are in excellent condition. They are both wadable, clear and the fishing is getting better daily.

 

The Beaverkill, Willoemoc, Lower East and Main Stem are now at wadable levels and anglers should be able to access all of their favorite sections of the river

 

Right now anglers can choose their method for chasing trout. Currently conditions are right for fishing Dries, Nymphs and Streamers. 

 

There are Stoneflies, Midges, Smalle Caddis, Blue Quills and Quill Gordons on the water. None of these are super heavy yet but you can always see some insect life on the waters surface. Hendricksone and Apple Caddis should start to show up soon.

 

Last week the Beaverkill and WIllowemoc received their first stocking of Trout from the satee of NY. Anglers fishng this weekend should find some eager to eat fish..

 

We have some openings this weekend for float trips. Currently we are doing a mix of streamer, nymph and dry fly fishing.  If you would like to get out give us a call in the fly shop. 607-290-4022
