Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report
The Upper Delaware rivers continue to fish well at low water conditions. Yesterday on the stretches that our guides fished Hendrickson activity was in high gear. Last night Hendrickson spinners filed the sky. When the spinners came down the action was non stop!
Below are some photos from yesterday

You can pick their brains on the latest hatches, techniques and locations. Our staff will be available to you on a daily basis from now through the end of June
Yesterday the bugs returned in a very good way. For most of the afternoon Hendricksons and Blue Quills emerged in solid numbers. There were a lot of anglers on the water and most everyone had good action on the surface.
This weekend anglers can expect to find unlimited wading access throughout the river system. Anglers should be able to fish both nymphs and dry flies with decent results.
There are Stoneflies, Midges, Small Caddis, Blue Quills and Quill Gordons and Hendrickson's on the water.

BEAVERKILL AND WILLOWEMOC
Both the Beaverkill and Willow are fishing decent under normal spring conditions. . Both rivers have excellent wading access at this time and there is very little angler pressure on these waters.
Hendricksons are emerging well and there is good spinner activity late in the day. Apple Caddis should make their appearance today or tomorrow on the Beaverkill.
Anglers should nymph early and start looking for risers in mid afternoon.
