Looking at doing a trip down the Delaware with a buddy of mine in my boat in hopes of some early season Smallmouth and/or even some Walleye. I am looking at dropping the boat in Narrowsburg on the NY side (or even up higher if anyone has a suggestion) and picking up with the other vehicle either in Tusten (10 mile access) or Lackawaxen (Zane Grey). Any suggestions for fishing the river at this time or any areas (sandbars, etc.) that I should avoid? We will have a 14' Starcraft Deep V (utility boat) with an electric motor and a 6hp. outboard. I figure tubes, small grubs, spider jigs, or even some small jerkbaits might work. Any other suggestions/advice are welcome! Thanks for any/all help!

I float the river about 3 times a year

With my detailed maps purchased from who can remember,, I can see where the shallow water is. e.g just past Narrowsburg it is usually necessary to walk my canoe for 100 yards. There are other spots as well depending upon flow. i would assume you will be scrapping bottom in few places as to where the shallow water is.

Past Port Jervis you will not hit any low spots.

It takes me almost all day to go five miles and fish it well. Ten miles you will be moving form 7-7 and barely have time to stop and fish.
