22Sep07 - Greg Boyd and I returned to fish the Delaware.  We fished the same section as the week before.  We both did well with a few smallies a piece and one striper.  Successful flies include buggy tan-brown flies, poppers and Dougherty's Paddler.  The morning trico hatch was tremendous leaving a carpet-like surface on the water.  A few fish gorged themselves (as seen below) on the easy treats.

16Sep07 - I had my best smallmouth bass day on the Delaware river.  Guide Greg Boyd and I drifted the river above and below the Frenchtown bridge.  We fished from 7:30 am - 12:30 pm.  During that time I caught roughly a dozen bass and missed at least three more.   My largest two bass were nearly black.  All fish were caught using an orange Dougherty's Paddler.

08Sep07 - I returned to fish the Lambertville wing-dam south to to just above Fireman's Eddy.  I fished towards evening and was hoping the rapids combined with the bait I had seen the previous week would result in more catches.  Unfortunately, only one bass was caught.  This bass was caught using a grey Dougherty's Paddler.  Other flies used included Clouser's floating minnow and poppers.  Again, the river appeared very low and clear.

03Sep07 - The fishing structure around Tumble Falls hadn't produced much so I decided to fish below the Lambertville wing-dam.  Again fishing was so-so with only two smallmouths and one bluegill.  Small minnows (shad) were abundant and measured roughly 3 inches in length.  Nothing was seen chasing the bait.  The river appeared low.

.

02Sep07 - I returned to fish Tumble Falls below Frenchtown, NJ with my wife Nancy.  We fished for about an hour and half towards evening.  Not much was happening.  A few caddis were emerging.  I did manage a couple of hits and one smallie.  The smallmouth was caught using a Dougherty's Paddler in orange.
