What To Bring
It's always a good idea to be prepared when planning an outdoor excursion - spring, summer or fall.
A valid New York OR Pennsylvania fishing license is required to fish the Upper Delaware River. You may purchase your license upon your arrival in Narrowsburg. Children, under the age of 16, are not required to obtain a fishing license. Children, 12 years of age and under, are required to wear a PFD (Personal Flotation Device) while on board.
Hat with wide brim
Valid NY or PA fishing license
Shorts (for wet wading)
Sneakers (for wet wading)
* Combined temperatures below 100 (50 degrees water + 50 degrees air)
* Combined temperatures above150 (70 degrees water + 80 degrees air)
Springtime along the Upper Delaware River Valley can be fickle. April and early May will see cloudy to partly cloudy skies with afternoon temperatures in the fifties to low sixties along with wind at times. The mornings can be quite chilly.
Mid May through late June is very pleasant with afternoon readings in the mid sixties to low seventies along with more sunny days.
The summer months of late June, July and August can be warm and at times humid. Days are sunny and the afternoons can warm into the upper eighties.
The crisp days of Autumn begin around Labor Day and welcome afternoons in the sixties once again with more cloud cover and shorter days.
In addition, last season, I have kept an online logbook which tracked my day to day float trips from April through November of 2003. Plus, you'll be able to find a webcam, current river data for many stations along the Upper Delaware River, West Branch, East Branch and Beaverkill Rivers and more timely information.
