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: Rivers and streams throughout the Pocono Mountains are flowing high but have been pretty steadily receeding. They should be all cleared up too. Due to outdoor temperatures lately, any stream in the Pocono Mountain region will be cold. High cold water calls for streamer fishing the slower, deeper sections of a river. It's a good way to cover water, search for a larger fish, and continue moving to keep your body warm. Fish this time of year in these conditions won't be as willing to chase down your meal serving, they'll be a little sluggish. If water is low and clear enough, fly fishing with small nymphs in the Pocono Mountains will prevail as well.
Delaware River System: The West Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 1,660cfs and 37-38 degrees at Hale Eddy. The East Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 1,620cfs and 34-35 degrees at Fish Eddy. The Main Stem is flowing roughly 4,080cfs and 33-34 degrees at Lordville.
The Upper Delaware River isn't too far from the freezing over point if these cold weather conditions continue. However, there is still fish to be caught on the Delaware River. Being that water has dropped and water conditions are clear, fly fishing with streamers and nymphs is possible. If you find some deeper water to nymph you can have success. Or, if you want to just keep moving and cover a bunch more water, throwing streamers will be your choice. And it's been productive chucking the streamers around on the Upper Delaware River. If they aren't eating one color don't hesitate to change that up until you find a pattern that works. We'll see what the weather does in the coming days, and whatever you do dress warm and stay safe out there.
