River Report / Conditions – May 28 , 2020

With the variety of bugs on the water, spending some extra time to study your target fish will pay off. Take a few casts, pause for a bit, then repeat. The perfect replica of a Rusty Spinner doesn’t always float over them every 12 seconds. And remember to enjoy your time on the river!  The […]

Today we’ll have a mix of clouds and sun, with temps in the lower 70s and winds SE at 7-10 mph. Good flights of tan and apple caddis have been a consistent occurrence throughout the system, starting in the afternoons  and lasting well into the evening. Blind casting March Browns in the seams and riffles has […]

Low water conditions and a good mix of bugs have made fishing a bit more technical. Studying rise forms and micro currents in the feeding lanes should be an integral part of your approach to rising fish. We’ve got some precipitation in the forecast which should help give the water a bit of color for the […]

Fishing has remained consistent despite the bright sun and windy conditions. Fish are feeding well on caddis and the remaining Hendricksons which are still hatching in decent numbers. Spinner falls are dependable in the late afternoon/evening. Presentation is becoming a key factor with flows dropping and clearing throughout the system. Its shaping up to be a […]

With a fair amount wind, and hatches sliding into a more transitional period, yesterday’s fishing leaned a bit more towards the technical side.  Fish are still filling up on Hendricksons, but having a good selection of olives, mayfly spinners, and spent caddis in your box will be helpful while we wait for the next round […]

The system is clearing up and settling in nicely from Friday’s precipitation. Hendricksons, Blue Quills, and Caddis are still the main attraction on the upper sections of the rivers. Keep an eye out for spinners preparing to drop in the late afternoon/evening. We are still closed to the public in conjunction with the current PA […]

With close to an inch of rain in the area yesterday, the system is running high and stained. A muted streamer with a large profile like Hawkins Hat Trick will be a good choice under these conditions. At the current levels, wading will be extremely limited and anglers should use caution when choosing fishing locations. […]

This season feels as though the weather reports have taken precedent over the fishing reports, but its finally starting to feel a lot more like May on the Upper Delaware.  The East Branch, West Branch, and Main Stem are all currently wadeable, with Hendricksons and Blue Quills still present throughout the system. Spinners are falling […]

Fishing this past week has been day to day. We are still seeing Iso’s Whiteflies, Baetis, Caddis, and Cahills.  Streamer fishing on the West has been good for a fish or two.  Both Upper and Lower East are extremely low, and I haven’t gotten much of a report from there. At 130cfs @ Harvard, I’d […]
