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 streamer fishing has been excellent on the west branch in the early mornings and in the evening. Black buggers and clouser patterns have been the ticket. If you would rather not throw big streamers for big beautiful colored up browns getting ready to spawn, then going down to the main stem is where you will find more consistent rising fish and that has been very productive over the last few weeks.

Seven-day forecast 

The outlook for the next 7 days looks to be alright with temps in the mid 70's and sunny. Really wish that we would get some rain. Its been pretty dry. But, the streamer fishing should continue to be productive throughout the week and the lower west and the upper main should continue to be good as well. Tight lines!
