05Aug07 - It was a beautiful morning to fish the Delaware River.  I managed to be out the door before 5:00 AM and on the water fishing before 6:00 AM.  I chose to fish Tumble Falls below Frenchtown, NJ due to its geological, finger-like rock structures.  Tan caddis were abundant, but mostly stayed to the trees lining the river.  The caddis were light tan and size 18.  A few bass were seen rising.  I managed a total of six smallmouth bass and one bluegill.  It wasn't an "on-fire" morning, but it wasn't bad either.  I fished till 10:00 AM, but all fish were caught between 5:45 AM and 9:00 AM.  Fish were caught on "Twister-tail" flies in purple and tan, and also on Dougherty's Paddler in orange.  Fish averaged 10-13 inches.  I did see one bass that was roughly 20 inches, 3-5 pounds.  A vast majority of the river was below knee deep, but the falls provided deeper pocket water.  The water was warm and clear; flow at Belvidere, NJ was 3000 CFS.  A seven weight rod was used with a floating line and a sinking leader -- flies were weighted.
