    Pike County - The Delaware River has returned to a suitable level for boating. Some boat ramps, in the Delaware Water Gap recreation area, remain closed due to flood damage. Most of the work to repair facilities at the Zane Grey Access on the Delaware River in Lackawaxen have been completed. This area has been reopened as of Friday, July 13th. Fishing activity has been slow at Lake Wallenpaupack and bass tournament participants are reporting very low catches of smallmouth and largemouth bass. Anglers targeting smaller ponds in the county are still having success locating and catching panfish and largemouth bass. Pickerel fishing has also been very good on area lakes and ponds. The best time to fish is during morning or evening hours. With the recent hot weather, the fishing activity has been slow during the middle of the day.
