Delaware River, West Branch

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Fishing has been good the past few days and are seeing a far number of fish rising on the surface taking some BWOs, some spinners, Iso's (Slate Drakes), Sulphurs and caddis. Nymphing in the riffles and runs is still productive. If nymphing isn't your thing you could do a dry dropper with an Iso up top and then have a soft hackle bead head PT trailing behind it, and just grid the water. Getting a clean down stream drift to feeding fishing is key. Practice a reach cast.

Seven-day forecast 

The outlook for the next 7 days looks to be a hot one with temps reaching the 80's on a few days, with some rain and clouds throughout the week. The fishing should continue to stay where it is at here on. Tight lines and lotsa luck
