Delaware River, West Branch

Tip of the week 

Fishing has been alright the past week here on the West Branch. Blind casting iso dries in the riffles with a dropper is a good technique this time of year and you could also have some good blue wing olive hatches as well depending on the weather. Using ants and beetles along the banks can be effective too. Wading shouldn't be a problem on the whole west branch. Nymphing and throwing streamers is going to be your best bet to get into fish but it wouldn't surprise me if you see a couple fish up top feeding.

Seven-day forecast 

The outlook for the next 7 days looks to be alright with temps in the mid to upper 60's and night themps into the low 40's. And then there is a chance for some rain as well early in the week. Fishing should continue to stay where it is at for awhile now.
