Delaware River Report / Conditions July 28, 2014

Jul 28, 2014 Comments Off by

Well Accuweather isn’t always so accurate. Instead of clouds mixed with showers yesterday we ended up with bright sunshine for most of the afternoon.  The river still fished with a mix of sulphurs, summer stenos, and small olives.  We had some decent success over the weekend blind casting Isonychias and tan caddis in the riffles.  If Accuweather is accurate today we should see some clouds with intermittent rain today hopefully bringing out the olives in decent numbers.  Wet flies and Isonychia nymphs have proved effective during slow period so don’t overlook the riffles even in the sunshine.
