Reports are that drift boats are beginning to interfere with the wading fishermen on the West Branch Delaware River. Trout fishers who take the time and effort to wade to their favorite fishing spots are having their fishing space invaded by the drift boat fishermen – especially new guides, as well as individual drift boat owners, who do not seem to have any knowledge of stream etiquette. A few complaints have come from wading fishermen that while they were hooking and landing  fish, a drift boater was heard to say “hey, he’s got fish over there!” and made his way over to where the wading fisherman was, and started to cast over toward the fish that the wading fisherman was working....... Let’s hope that this does not become standard operating procedure – and that the drift boaters will remember the ‘rules’ and etiquette of this fine sport of trout fishing.
