The Upper Delaware is one of the premier rivers in the country. The cold-bottom releases from its reservoirs on the East and West branches create a 73 mile haven for wild trout throughout the system.
Lee Hartman was one of the early anglers to venture to the river in 1973 for its trout. Today Lee continues to guide on the river and hosts anglers to great fishing destinations throughout the world.
Lee Hartman is the author of Trails in a Wild Frontier about his fishing travels throughout Siberia and the Kola Peninsula. He is also the author of The Delaware River Story that focuses on the history and his personal story in helping preserve the fishery, giving the reader a colorful and unique perspective of what it is like to fish the river and how important it is to protect the cold-water fishery.
