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!
