Upper Delaware Fly Fishing Report

Over the Weekend we had pretty good action on all of our guided trips. Late Friday a much heavier release started from Cannonsville Reservoir which is still ongoing.

The West Branch and Main Stem are now Bank full and running with varying degrees of turbidity. The turbidity is heavy up in the West and it lessens the further you go downstream. Overall the turbidity has made the Dry Fly fishing a bit easier and it has the streamer bite back on in the areas of heavy turbidity. Below is a nice streamer Brown from yesterday

On yesterday's float we had a half dozen Browns in the 18" range come to net and we had about double that take the streamer that were lost in the heavy current.

Anglers planning to fish the West should remember that the Uppermost section of the river is now closed for the year. Anglers can fish from the Border Waters are downstream at this time.

All of our recent trips have had very good Nymph and Dry Fly activity. Recently we had our first few trips in a long while where the better part of the day was spent on setting up on steadily rising Trout. I love the initial days of this amazing hatch because most of the trout we have been fishing have been quickly fooled with our tiny BWO Knock Down Duns. Yesterday we had some amazing fishing taking three 18"+ Wild Rainbows on # 18 Olives. Two of these fish had us into the backing in seconds.
