Delaware River Report / Conditions August 22, 2013

Not quite as productive as I had hoped out on the river yesterday, with the bright sun putting a bit of a kibosh on activity throughout the day, and the bugs never really popped en masse in the evening. There were some very nice flushes of sulphurs and epeorus, and the fish were definitely interested, but they never came off in strong enough numbers to get the river really lit up. Today we’re going to have some possible t-storms rolling around with warm air temps, which means (in all likelihood) we’ll have some good stop-and-go hatching throughout the day, and likely some fog if the rain ever materializes. Cloud cover is supposed to be be thicker as well, which does bode well for active fish during the day. Still hoping for those flying ants to show as well!
