Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report

Right now we have mid Summer Fishing conditions on all Upper Delaware Rivers.

The Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Lower East Branch and Lower Main Stem are all low and at marginal water temperatures for Trout fishing.

The Upper East Branch, West Branch and Upper Main Stem are cold from the reservoir releases and fishing well.

At this time Baxter House is offering both full and half day guided float trips for both Trout and Smallmouth Bass / Walleye. My top choice for this time is still the West Branch and Upper Main Stem Delware. The release has these waters in the correct temperature range for both insects and Trout. I have been on the water daily here and there is dry fly activity just about all day long.
