Delaware River, Main Stem - Hancock to Callicoon

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Dry fly time. Make reach casts on target. Swinging soft hackles & wet flies has also been very effective.

Seven-day forecast 

The jump in water levels we saw form some rain bombs this weekend are over and the river is dropping like a stone. Hot weather this week will shrink the trout water down to Stockport at best as an increase in the warm water East Branch flow leaves more water to be diluted by the colder West Branch flow. Low water levels will make floating difficult unless you don't mind beating up your boat. T-storms in the forecast from mid week on.
