Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report


Over the last few days the fishing conditions in the Upper Delaware have improved dramatically. The recent overcast and rainy weather combined with cooler air temperatures have everything going our way for a change. We currently have som of the best fishing conditions of the season and we are about to enter July.

At this time every river in the system has good water flows and the correct water temperatures for insects and trout to be active. We are currently able to float about every secction of river in the system. For those of you who enjoy floating the Main Stem Delaware with us conditions are good. I have been on the Main the last few days and there have been excellent hatches and rising Trout about everywhere. On the last 2 floats we fished the dry fly for almost the entire floats with steady action. Over the last few days Isonychia have been emerging heavily and the trout are on them. If you want to get out this week give us a call in the shop - 607-290-4022

Anglers fishing in the coming days will find most of our rivers to be on the high side. There is turbidity that varies from section to section but there is at least a light some turbidity everywhere. This should continue to clear over the next few days. The level of turbidity that is currently in the Main Stem is perfect for rising fish.
