FilingoFlyFishing is far from your average guide service. I built this company from the ground up to be unique and stand apart from the rest. How do I do that you ask..? It's simple - by giving you a fresh and beautiful experience on the water. I wouldn't dare tell you that on my trips your guaranteed to catch "The Largest Fish" you've ever seen. Nope.. I can promise that I will provide you with opportunities to catch fish, however; but I can't hold the rod for you. More importantly, I will make sure we have the time of our lives while on a guided tour together, or when taking a casting or tying lesson. Not only am I a guide, but also a teacher of the art form and rivers. This means that I'll be filling you with knowledge on bugs as we lift rocks together, fish as we see them behave, and every other aspect of the river's lively veins. As our day comes to an end, you'll leave our experience with full confidence that you can catch fish wherever you may be, alone or in company. You'll now have the knowledge and skill sets to feel much more comfortable on the water.
Pocono Mountains Streams: The mornings have been pretty dang cold around the Pocono Mountain region lately. We're not expected to get hit with as much snow as originally called for this week, but there's still a chance for accumulation in some areas throughout the Pocono Mountains. Water is still a little high on most of our waterways, but receding and clear. Water throughout the Pocono Mountain streams is cold though, which can make for some tough fly fishing. We've been finding trout on smaller nymphs lately. They're eating a lot of Caddis imitations this time of year! Fly fishing with streamers is also productive right now in the deeper sections of water, but you'll be working for fish until the temps continue to climb in the Poconos.
Delaware River System: The West Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 334cfs and 34-42 degrees at Hale Eddy. The East Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 908cfs and 34-40 degrees at Fish Eddy. The Main Stem is flowing roughly 1,530cfs and 34-38 degrees at Lordville.
We floated the West Branch of the Delaware River over the weekend and had some success. Fish were definitely sluggish due to the cold start, but some were willing to eat. The West Branch has the least amount of flow right now, but it's also peaking with the warmest temperatures rising to nearly 42 degrees. Fly fishing with streamers in the lower, clear water was productive, as well as nymphing certain sections with smalle nymphs. The Upper Delaware River right now is lowering in all stems, but temperatures are starting in the mid 30's and rising to 40 degrees. Water temps are definitely not ideal, but the trout need to eat. We'll see what happens with this coming snow storm, and hopefully we'll be able to get on the water!
