Delaware River, New York - Fishing Report -
12, 2018
The West Branch is down but the other two sections are still running high, too
high to wade safely. Multiple hatches are taking place. Good numbers of trout
were being caught by drift boat and wading anglers before the high water, and in
all sections of the river. It is falling and should be in good shape soon.
