Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers

August 9, 2018

WEEKEND UPDATE

 

The rainfall has continued throughout the Catskill and Upper Delaware regions. There have been areas that have received localized heavy downpours that have caused areas of heavy runoff.

 

All of the Upper Delaware rivers are still running above normal high water conditions.

 

Conditions are about perfect for Streamer fishing and our guests have been taking some impressive fish all week. Regardless of weather all of our scheduled trips for the next few days are ON!

 

If you are a wade angler the next few days are not expected to offer much opportunity. The Beaverkill, Willowemoc are a few days away from good wade conditions. The Upper East is in the same boat. The Lower East, West and Main Stem are too high and dangerous for any quality fishing on foot.

 

With all of that said the Drift Boat fishing is good and there is a hot streamer bite. The possibility of taking Huge Trophy sized Brown Trout is at it highest level since the Green Drake hatch. 

 

Below are some shots from Baxter House Guides Marty, Zach and Matt from this week. The bite is hot!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 If you have not experienced a high water summer streamer bite it is normally super exciting. The trout are in high gear and some days the amount of aggressive chases is off the chart.

 

Due to the fact the the region is fully soaked we expect the high water to be around for a while. The last time we had similar summer conditions that included spilling reservoirs the action lasted several weeks.
