May and June have had long days, and plenty of fish to be had. Spin fishing and fly fishing conditions have been fantastic. We are nearing the end of our trout and shad fishing season. Smallmouth bass and Walleye will begin to be our choice target species. Once water temps begin to decline again later in the fall we will target trout more specifically again. Join us for a summer float trip! Call us at 570-224-4747 to schedule a trip today!
We have had a very busy Spring season. We have had phenomenal trout fishing on the West Branch and Upper Main Stem, and great Shad and Walleye fishing lower down on the Main Stem. Here are some photos from our successful anglers!
We have started our 2017 season off with the reservoirs at over 100% and spilling over the dams. We have Alewives in the rivers and fish are gorging and healthy. We have been hammering Brown trout on the West Branch, and are having solid mixed bag days on the Main stem. Join us for a float trip!
7 walleye, 3 smallmouth bass, 3 chain pickerel, 1 brown trout, and 3 fallfish boated on 2/23/17. Keep an eye on the weather and schedule a late February/early March fishing trip. We are filling up our spring fishing dates. Plan ahead and schedule a spring fishing trip today! Give us a call at 570-224-4747, or email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tight Lines Everyone!
Between the last few winter storms, we have had breaks in the weather, enough to get the boat out on open water. Each day we have gone out has produced a variety of fish. Our last outing we managed to boat 4 different species of fish, and enjoyed a 40 degree day on the water. Walleye, Pickerel, Fallfish, and Suckers were caught. Here are a couple of pictures! And remember, give us a call at 570-224-4747 to schedule your 2017 fishing trip today!
After some rain and warm temperatures, select locations are accessible on the Upper Delaware. We have Walleye fished 3 times with success in the past two weeks. It appears that Old Man Winter is returning for a little while again, but keep your eyes on the weather for nice days, and give us a call if you can brave the cold for some open water Walleye fishing!
Spring Fishing Trips are booking up! We have been getting reservations for April-June almost daily. Plan ahead if you will like to fish on select dates. Call Mike at 570-224-4747 to schedule your trip today!

This summer was full of beautiful weather, great scenery and great fishing. Here are some photos from our successful anglers! Fall fishing is shaping up nicely with nice Rainbow trout, Brown trout, Bass and Walleye fattening up for winter. Schedule your trip today!
The month of July has been a true summer month with hot days and some relatively cool nights. The Cannonsville Reservoir release has been sustained at around 500cfs and was recently risen to 700cfs. This cold water is providing nice cool water for the West Branch and very Upper Main stem. Down stream it is helping the lower main stem flows stay up so there are not as many shallow exposed places. The fishing for all species here has remained good, with the Smallmouth Bass fishing taking the cake with 60+ fish days on the regular.
Here are some photos of our successful anglers from the end of June and into July. Please give us a call at 570-224-4747 to schedule a late July or August fishing trip. A day on the water is blissful and relaxing, come join us.
June has been a mix between Shad, Bass, Walleye and Trout fishing. All Species have been feeding and caught daily. We have had a super busy month and we will now begin to have July bass fishing openings. Give us a call or email to set up a July fishing trip.
Water temperatures allowed us to fish through the third week of May pretty successfully for Trout. Once we got around 68 degree water we started targeting Shad, Bass, and Walleye more regularly. We can still do limited Trout trips on the West Branch and Upper Main stem when the water flows and temperatures cooperate.
Early May has brought successful angling. Here are some photos to prove it.
Spring Fishing has been great on our Upper Delaware River!
April started off with below average temperatures, snow, followed by significant rain. Now that we have seen stable warming temperatures and less rain, the river is in great shape. The past week on the water has provided all time Brown trout fishing. Here are some photos from the past few days.
April has started off with unusually warm temperatures and low river flows. This is setting a few things on the river ahead of schedule. We are seeing bugs and spawning habits happening up to a month earlier than last year. Being that it is still April and inconsistent weather is holding true, these now cold air temps and wintery weather should put a slight pause in the early spring trends. But for now, the fishing has been productive for Browns and Rainbows, and of course in Delaware fashion Walleye and Bass are still feeding.
Sweetwater Guide Service was able to get out on the river a few days here in early March. The fishing was good. Walleye season is now closed until the first Saturday in May. We will be targeting Brown trout, Rainbow trout and Shad, April-June. Schedule your trip today!
