Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report


Anglers planning to fish this weekend will find all of our Upper Delaware Rivers to be on the low side. Currently the freestone rivers are really low. The East and West branches have minimal releases at this time. There is light rainfall in the forecast for the next 5 days. The current forecast is not predicting any substantial rainfall but it is predicting the type of weather conditions that usually provide exceptional fly fishing. If we have this prolonged period of overcast skies and light misty rainfall insect activity is sure to increase throughout the river system. Yesterday there was a marked improvement in insects activity throughout the day.

Based on the forecast this should be a great weekend to be out on the water. Here are the specifics.

At this time the only places that I am suggesting to fish are the Upper East Branch, West Branch and Main Stem. these are the only places that have had changing flow rates and good conditions for the Trout.

Our guides have been on the Main Stem and West Branch daily and our guests are enjoying great action. On all of my recent trips the nymph action has been steady and we are taking lots of Mature Wild Rainbows.
