Delaware River, Main Stem - Hancock to Callicoon

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Far & fine in the low, clear water. We've been doing well swinging wets & soft hackles in between hatching periods.

Seven-day forecast 

Some T-storms put a little more water in the river, and a mid week cold front will keep it nice & cool at least through Saturday. Bug activity should increase along with fish activity. Green drakes could start soon, but don't hold your breath, just seeing a few each day right now. That's how that hatch goes. In any event, the fishing, especially dry fly fishing, has finally hit the excellent mark.
