Delaware River, West Branch

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Fishing has been real good r the past few day and are seeing a good number of fish rising on the surface taking some BWOs, and the occasional Quill Gordon, Blue Quill and Hendricksons. Nymphing in the riffles and runs is still productive. If nymphing isn't your thing you could do a dry dropper with a stonefly 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 and with the clear water you may want to use 6X tippet when fishing dries

Seven-day forecast 

The outlook for the next 7 days looks to be killer with temps in the mid 60's with some rain and clouds throughout the week. The fishing should continue to get better here on the West and should continue to see good bug activity. Tight lines
