05.25.21 Jumped the river, one hit....

     Jumped across the river and had the place to myself. Water levels are down on the entire Delaware system and the upcoming rain should do it good. Had one hit among three lost flies. That's big pocket water fishing for you. The gauge is reading 66 degrees which is better than the mid 70's 

we have been seeing with the hot spell we've been in. The fish are there, they are just difficult to get on the fly. The fish don't hand up in the water column in the big water, and they know that leaving there holding place to grab a fly means they will have to head downstream and reset. If you look below you can see where the fish should have held. Lots of flow, oxygen, and bait passing by.
