March 13th: Upper Delaware Tactics with Jeff Church

By  | 

March 13, 2019 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Join us on March 13th for an in-depth presentation about fishing the wonderful wild trout fishery of New York’s Upper Delaware River system with long-time guide Jeff Church. The program will provide a great look at the entire system and how it works, touching on hatches, techniques, flow protocols and how they work and influence the fishing.

This season marks Jeff’s 25th year of guiding on the Upper Delaware system, having spent 13 years at Al Caucci’s Delaware River Club and 11 years at West Branch Angler. Prior to discovering the Upper Delaware system, Jeff guided in Alaska on the Alagnak River and led many remote float trips throughout western Alaska and Katmai Park. He has also guided anglers for salmon and steelhead on the Great Lakes tributaries. When he is not matching the hatch on the Upper Delaware, he enjoys chasing bonefish on the flats of Andros in the Bahamas or doing an annual fall float trip on remote Alaskan rivers. He is a lifetime member of the Henry’s Fork Foundation and is very active in Friends of the Upper Delaware River, having won the Top Guide in the One Bug in 2012 and placing 2nd place in 2013.

The chapter meeting is held the second Wednesday of each month at the Stony Hill Fire House at 59 Stony Hill Road in Bethel. Doors open at 7 p.m. with pizza and drinks and the meeting begins at 7:30.
