Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report


This weekend should offer great fishing conditions for visiting anglers. Currently every Upper Delaware river is in good shape. All of our rivers are crystal clear and a bit low for the date. Water temperatures are optimum for both insects and Trout.

All of the Baxter House Guides have been on the water every day with guests. We have been finding lots of action for our guests and have brought lots of BIG trout to net this week on both dries and nymphs.

Below are 2 photos from my Main Stem Float yesterday.

Currently the Best Emergence of Mayflies are on the tailwaters. The West Branch is pumping out Hendrickson's. The other rivers seem to be somewhat past the peak of emergence at this time.

There are still plenty of insects on all waters to get the trout surface feeding daily. You can expect to see a mix of Apple Caddis, Grey Caddis, Hendricksons, Blue Quills, Quill Gordons, Stoneflies and heavy spinner activity.
