SAO/WBA Guides John Miller and Scott McClintock have been doing very well over on the Delaware River. The flows had been extremely low this spring, but as of today the the river got a small release of cold water. It's nice to see NYC place a "one flush policy" on all its big city residents to afford alittle water for the businesses and people along the West Branch who really need it. Hey NYC river master both reservoirs are full? What in the heck are you waiting for? Once again city government and shady politics are threatening a gem of a natural resource... Sound familiar? We live in a nation that has the ability to put people on the moon, but we can't find anyone responsible enough to cap a broken oil line in the gulf or open a spill way on the finest resource in the east...Go Figure? Despite river conditions our friends over at the West Branch Angler(http://www.westbranchresort.com) have been able to do well in the mornings and evenings when river temps were favorable to fishing... Here are a few pics...
A sweet looking Delaware River Brown Trout.
Another good brown trout.
Between traveling, seminars, lessons, trips, work, and family I have had very little personal fishing time over the past month. I did have a chance to tie up a few new flies and hit a few of my favorite Large Mouth Bass ponds and lakes between responsibilities. Things are looking great and I will be heading to Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho over the next couple of months.
Galloup's famous Swimmy Jimmy tied with Senyo's Laser Dubbing in a rainbow trout version for Small Mouth Bass, and a Sunfish Version for large mouth bass.
