Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers

Out of the fog comes Mr. Brown


This weekend anglers visiting the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers will find good conditions all around. Just about all of our local rivers are wadable and fishing well. Overall angler pressure is very light. Over the last 2 weeks I have been floating full days with the majority of the river being void of humans.

There is good insect activity around the system but there is a big difference in activity on each river and section. The best dry fly action remains on the Upper West Branch and Upper East Branch. On these sections the daily hatches are reliable and the fish are in a daily pattern of feeding whenever insects are present. On overcast days feeding activity can happen at any time.
