Upon fishing the Delaware for the first time i learned that the trout it holds are very finnicky and tough to catch. But with a little patience and hard work it can be done. The river and its fish are absolutely beautiful and fight like hell. Because of all these ill definitely be coming back soon!
Most of us fish our whole lives..not knowing its not the fish that we are after.

Yup. The Big-D is a large, productive, heavily fished, tailwater. Coming with that as a package are trout that can be "selective" at times, but at very least, or maybe more accurately, are approach and presentation sensitive.

The stretch you have pictured can be Reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyy interesting at times, esp if the water is low enough that the guys drifting down the WB can't easily clear the riffle at the 191 bridge.

Was the Bald Eagle hanging around when you were up?

It appears that you are at the head of what regulars call "Lake Lenore". There is a resident bald eagle nest on the left in that stand of trees and some braids upstream from where the picture was taken. Down river, at the tail of Lake Lenore, is a section of riffle water leading into the Stockport water.

This brown was caught near where you took your photo.
