Since NJ water temperatures has been to hot to safety C&R trout. Ive been making day trips up to NY State to fish the West Branch Upper Delaware. Well last week I decided to stay a few days. Things you have to do to get to spots like negotiate this jungle. Been catching a load of 22 inch wild browns. Fished a few nite outing with great results. Fly & spin fished. Even thru some mouse flies out @ nite.

Great river and great fish. As long as the flows from the damn are reasonable, that branch can stay cool all summer long. When I do go up there, the Hale Eddy meter is what I check. 

 

I fished mice at night once on what is known as "Home Pool" by Al Caucci and the folks at the Delaware River Club (did you stay there?). That pool is right in front of the hotel and can hold amazing numbers of fish. One minute will look placid and devoid of life but as soon as the bugs start coming off, you can see a dozen or two trout rising as if someone flipped a light switch. 

 

One night one of the guides there tells me to grab my heaviest rod (6wt) and follow him down to the bank. Nearly a full moon so visibility was good and that hotel side of the bank is kept snag free. Second cast with a big deer hair mouse pattern and "boom", it gets hit hard. A couple of runs later a 24" brown comes to the net and the guide says "A shame, it is a small one". A couple more like that but did not get to see one of the big hawgs he says lie in there, over 30". He said they normally move up at night to eat the 6-8" trout that will be on the surface eating duns or spinners. We did hear some serious splashes but did not see where it happened. 

 

Love your fish photos and ability to find them in the heat of summer.

You are welcomed Victor and congrats. We both know how tough those large wild browns fight and they are not easy to land.

 

I have some new techniques to try this year and have refined some of the old ones. I had a few last year that fought me to a standstill for several minutes on medium tackle.

 

Looking forward to getting out there soon and I am bringing my big net. This time of year there should be some nice walleyes and smallmouth as well if you know where to look.
