Al and the Three Bears

Al and the Three Bears

Al wasn’t one to miss quality dry fly action.   It surprised me that he wasn’t in his usual spot, targeting risers.  We were fishing a productive flat of the West Branch of the Delaware and our day was going well.  We enjoyed considerable fishing success and things looked...
Dandelion Time

Dandelion Time

“Wait for the dandelions.”  Once they start blooming, expect quality fishing.  It’s a mantra that a fishing friend espouses.  It’s not bad advice.  Dandelions are something that you can set your Springtime clock to.   We’ve been pulling them in my yard for about a...
Hendricksons on the Main Stem of the Delaware

Hendricksons on the Main Stem of the Delaware

Nothing shakes off the cold of winter more than sun shining and trout rising to mayflies.  The vision of trout slurping down early springtime mayflies is a thing of beauty.  If you are dry fly fisherman and you target trout, it’s only a matter of time before anticipation builds.  Excitement for...
A Hole in the Dam

A Hole in the Dam

My fly tying lasted past midnight.  I was motivated to tie another batch of #20 poly emerger bwo’s.  Even thought I just returned from fishing the West Branch of the Delaware, I wanted to replenish my supply.  Despite fishing all day and returning after a three hour drive, I was eager to restock...
WBD Solitude

WBD Solitude

Rain over the past three weeks has made many of our local creeks unfishable.  Because the West Branch of the Delaware is a tailwater, it’s less susceptible to discoloration.  After monitoring the weather forecast and the water level, I decided to commit and make an overnight trip to the WBD....
Avoiding Thunderstorms

Avoiding Thunderstorms

Before our latest blast of rain, I managed a day escape to the West Branch of the Delaware.  It’s been a tough, unusual season on the WBD.  Up to the past few days, water levels were low and the temp was hovering on the high side.  This makes insect hatches inconsistent.  There hasn’t...
Hot Temps and Low Water on the Delaware

Hot Temps and Low Water on the Delaware

Over a week ago I fished the West Branch and Main Stem of the Delaware.  It was early May and I had never seen the WBD so low (290 cfs).  Most years the water on the WBD is twice, or three times that flow in May.  There’s been some years when I’ve fished the WBD the first two weeks of...

First Time On the West Branch of the Delaware

First Time On the West Branch of the Delaware

This past Monday my mom and I hit the road for a most memorable trip to the WBD. We were going to the West Branch Angler and Resort on the Orvis hosted trip for three days and three nights, all were spent eating, sleeping (minimally) and fishing. We got there Monday afternoon and quickly unloaded our...
