fishing


Some glue and a top cut off a bottle may make this gear look extra redneck, but it will help keep the magnet from getting snagged on things under the water. 

Fishing without a license

In early summer, I braved the lower Delaware River and went striper fishing. It was cold, but we caught some great fish and had a fantastic time. I used bait I’d never touched before (bloodworms) and had to learn to let the fish go on the line longer than I was used to in order to hook one.


Ed Wesely took these photos of Walter Bryk back in 2005. At the time, he wrote, “Walter Byrk has motored from Dupont, near Wilkes Barre PA, to fish on the ice at Narowsburg’s Big Eddy. In the picture, Walter holds up three Walleyes he caught on Sunday, December 18.”

Conditions improving daily

The fishing options around the Upper Delaware Region are improving. Over the last few days, our guides have been able to head out with guests and fish streamers, dry flies and nymphs. Based on the current week’s weather forecast, this trend should continue.

Mid-summer fly fishing report

During the summer months, everything about the river environment happens at a much slower pace. Every year by our current date the insect hatches and the trout’s behavior fall into a very predictable daily routine. In stark contrast to the slower trout fishing, it is prime time for pursuing smallmouth bass with the fly.

Opening Day

Opening Day. The words opening day mean different things to different people. For example if you’re a Yankees fan, it means opening day at the ball park. But if you are a trout fisherman, fly fisher, or otherwise, it means only one thing: winter is over, and it’s time to load the car and head to the river.
