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: Flows throughout the Pocono Mountains are good right now but definitely cold after this weather snap. The colder air and water temps will definitely slow the bite down and you'll have to go underneath with nymphs and streamers to best find trout in the Pocono Mountain region. Smaller bugs such as downsized common nymphs like the Pheasant Tail and Zebra Midges are effective flies this time of year in the Poconos. Fly fishing with streamers in the slower, deeper pools is a go to this time of year as well for the Pocono Mountains. Just be aware of the trout spawning Redds as you fly fish the Pocono streams right now. Be Very Careful!!
Upper Delaware River: The West Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 404cfs and 42-43 degrees at Hale Eddy. The East Branch of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 1,590cfs and 41-42 degrees at Fish Eddy. The Main Stem of the Delaware River is flowing roughly 2,110cfs and 40-42 degrees at Lordville.
The Upper Delaware River is definitely running some cold water right now. The East Branch of the Delaware River is pumping in the most and coldest water, while the West Branch of the Delaware River is around 404cfs @ Hale Eddy. Quite a bit different from what we've been used too over the last couple of months. Trying to move fish with Streamers on the Delaware River right now gives you a fair chance, along with fly fishing with nymphs. Once we get a couple warmer days, "if" we get them, then maybe we'll see some BWO's flying about. Until then you shouldn't expect much of a chance at fly fishing. Best of luck out there weathering the tough weather. Old Man Winter is finally here!
