Upper Delaware River Fly Fishing Report

Weekend Outlook - Lots of Options

Over the last few days the river flows around the Upper Delaware have continued to drop their flow rates. For the first time this season both wade and drift boat anglers have decent access to the water. At the current flows we are now finally able to fish streamers, nymphs and dry flies and see results with each technique.

Thus far the insect hatches have kept pace with the high water and cold weather. The hatches are at least 2 weeks behind normal and the best fishing is just getting going. All of our rivers still have very cold water temps for the date and no really warm weather has hit our area yet. The next month should bring us some explosive action. A lot of bugs will be pouring out of the water in the coming days.

At this time all of our guests are getting lots of opportunity. Most of the time we have been keeping the dry fly rods in their hands but the nymph action is now on and about to hit high gear.

Our guides have been netting some impressive Trout this week.
