    Happy new fishing season to everyone. Well, today is the first day the water from the PA border up opens for fishing. This section is actually looking pretty good as far as the ice goes. As you go down the West Branch you will find more shelf ice along the bank. The West Branch is very low and should get better as our snow hopefully melts over the upcoming days. The flow at Stilesville is only 85 cfs and the gauge at Hale Eddy seems to be broke as it's not reading anything. The main Delaware is still very frozen in most spots. If you get out you'll likely be nymphing with some small black stones in 16-18 or Copper Johns that have a similar "stonefly" profile. Other small nymphs will work well too. It looks like some slightly warmer temps and some precipitation are in the forecast which should help thaw everything out and get some more water in the rivers. Basically, it's still winter in Hancock with lots of snow and temps in the twenties at night. We are hoping for some change, soon!! Lotsa' Luck

    The river system has been dropping a bit over the last week but very slowly due to the sporadic rain we've been getting. The West is still at 419 at Hale Eddy then down on the mainstem the flow is around 1,200. The lower East at Fishs' Eddy is 560 and the upper is 173 above the beaverkill. Please remember that the upper West is closed until the PA border. The fishing has remained pretty good for this time of year even with some decent dry fly activity with the warm weather. Small Blue Winged Olives from 18-24 are around on these warmer afternoons and with the lower water the fish are looking up. Bring some 14 Isonychia as well just in case you run into a few. Nymphs, like small pheasant tails or stoneflies are also great flies for this time of year when fished in the moving water. It's been a great year for fall fishing on the Delaware system so good luck.
