Spring Recap On the Upper Delaware River

It has been a rollercoaster year for fishing. We have had tough flows and periods of brutal heat followed by a cold start to summer. Some days there aren’t fish for the best anglers and other days a beginner can take 10 to hand. That’s fishing. A special congrats to our neighbors Bryan and Marla Farley on there wedding at camp. We had a great season thus far with clients and are grateful for everyone of you. Thanks to all the guides that have worked hard to put our floating family on fish. Chris, Steve, Tom, Luc and Joe for all the hard work and hand callouses. We look forward to a great summer and fall season. -Matt Hackett


Low Water

Water is low. Very wadable. State is holding back the water back in the reservoirs. Pictures from the past week or so. Got to time the hatches and spinner falls right. It’s not easy everyday like May should be lol tan caddis 16, olives 18 paraleps 18 hendricksons 12, 14 and March Browns 8 are all on one river or all right now.

Not an easy day

A lot of these recent big fish are not any indication of the hendricksons being thick yet on the tail waters. It just helps when your guide has been on the water the last 30 days. Love the edge sippers. Very tall 22”
