Spring Fly Fishing on the Delaware River
Late March will bring the start of many prolific hatches on the West Branch of the Delaware. On warmer days in late March, Blue Wing Olives will begin to hatch in abundance, bringing trout out of their winter holding pattern into their typical spring feeding pattern. Later in April, the famous Hendrickson hatch will take way causing even the biggest trout in the river to be fooled on a dry fly. Once the water begins to warm a little, the streamer fishing can be excellent. May is the month where you have a little bit of everything going on. From Hendricksons, to Caddis, to March Browns, to early Sulphurs there is always some kind of hatch taking place.
Summer Fly Fishing on the Delaware River
While fly fishing the Delaware River in the months of June, July, and August, expect hatches of Sulphurs, Isonychias, Blue Wing Olives, Ants, and Tricos. The fish have been educated and fished heavily at this point so presentation becomes even more important. If technical dry fly fishing is your thing, this is the time to come! The summer months are an excellent time to nymph and swing wet flies during the day before the afternoon hatch kicks on. Mousing and streamer fishing after dark becomes a popular way to target large trout in the summer!
All tackle will be provided EXCEPT waders and we're willing to accommodate most any reasonable request.
