Delaware River Report / Conditions July 11, 2013

More summertime fun on the river yesterday. We had good hatches earlier in the day with some thick clouds threatening showers (that never really came), but they petered out a bit as the sun began to pop out. The fish did get active again towards evening both upriver and down our way,  but the further downstream you were, the earlier the activity ended due to our old friend, fog. Today it looks like we’re seeing a bit of a break from the heat, as well as some excellent cloud cover – if it holds, expect the bugs to be out in force!
