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: Even though it's more than halfway through March here in Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Pocono Mountains, it feels more like January outside. We've been getting pounded with snow and cold temperatures, with more on the way. Most of our rivers and streams throughout the Pocono Mountain region are still a bit, clear, and have been slowly receeding. Water temps are in the mid to high 30s, some in the low 40's, making the fly fishing a little slow. Nymphing has been producing a few fish but even then your working for trout in the Pocono Mountain region. Fly fishing with streamers is a good way to cover some water right now with these cold temperatures, hoping to fool a larger trout in the Poconos.
Delaware River System: The West Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 370cfs and 35-38 degrees at Hale Eddy. The East Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 973cfs and 36-38 degrees at Fish Eddy. The Main Stem is flowing roughly 1,680cfs and 35-37 degrees at Lordville.
Water on the Delaware River has been dropping in cfs and temperatures with these cold nights.. The West Branch of the Delaware River has the lowest flow right now, just about 350cfs at Hale Eddy. All systems are lowering, and clear. Due to the cold water temps, however, trout will be sluggish on the take. Fly fishing with streamers is a good way to search the open water of the Upper Delaware River for trout this time of year. As water continues to drop and remains clear, fly fishing with nymphs on the Upper Delaware River should become more productive. We're not seeing much in the line of bugs right now, and next weeks snow storm makes it seem far away, but it'll happen before we know it.
