Delaware River, West Branch

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The fishing over the last few days has been a little tough. The hatches have not been consistent as like earlier this month and at the end of August. The fishing can still be good, but again the fishing is very technical and you need to make sure you get a good down stream drift and then going down to the lower west or upper main stem has been producing the most fish by far. Throwing big Iso's and light cahill have been productive as well.

Seven-day forecast 

The outlook for the next 7 days looks to be good. Throughout the week we see temps into the mid 60's and 70's over the week. The hatches should continue to be good throughout the week. There are still Sulphurs, Light Cahill, Slate Drakes, BWO, and small black Caddis around sizes 18-20, and Slate drakes hanging around. Should be another descent week. Tight Lines!
