Delaware River Days - 2019
« on: May 09, 2019, 07:41 PM »
My son and I made our annual trip to Deposit/Hancock last week and despite high water conditions, we found good areas to wade with bugs and rising trout.

Thursday was the perfect day with warm temps, light wind, overcast skies with some sun later in the day, bugs hatching early and often and targets on top from about 1:30 PM to dark. My son went on a tear in the evening and it was fun to watch him.

Friday was a different story, we woke up to temps that felt raw with drizzle.   Although the big storms held off until about 5:30, the bugs were scarce so it was more of a waiting game to find some heads poking through the surface. We caught some good fish but not the numbers we had enjoyed the day before.

All in all, great time with my son  and the fish are wild and healthy.  Some photos  attached.

Thanks!

Bob, as time goes on it does get tougher and tougher  to connect on fishing trips with my boys as they both have busy lives of their own so nowadays the company is more important the number of fish caught (although catching a few never hurts).

Those are beauties! Glad you got out with your son. I'll be on the Beaverkill and the Willow next month; hope the water is down some.

Yes sir, had some good ice fishing trips when the boys were young, they loved chasing those flags.
