Headed up to Hancock Sunday morning after the rains blew out central PA. DaveS, Stimey, PhilC, NJ Tom and Josh showed up. My brother in law also brought the nephews up for a few days. I skipped the first day as the gauge in Stilesville read 5000 cfs. Too much for me. Stimey, Dave and Phil gave it a run and caught fish. They even found rising fish and hatches. Gutcutter and 3 buddies were at the WB Angler and we stayed in touch. Some good success was found wading / floating the lower Beaverkill. IMO, the main was dangerously high so we skipped it. I hit the east one day with the bro in law and youngest nephew but it was a bust. Dave and Stimey kept getting into fish higher up on the west so we floated that a few times. Fish were taken on streamers, caddis, hendricksons, rusty spinners, paraleps, My buddy Brandon that guides for Joe D had a few days off and lent his boat so I could take the kids down the river. Back to back afternoons I hooked 15-20 fish and handed them off to the youngsters. They lost all but one. LOL. The oldest nephew took one on a rusty spinner all by himself and it measured right at 20". In the end, we had a pretty good trip in spite of the poor conditions. Below is a video of the trip.

Estimated that I rowed 46 miles. Barely fished but had fun. We lost 2 big streamer fish and whiffed the biggest trout I've ever seen rise to dry flies

There are no trout in the Delaware.
