Delaware River Report / Conditions July 5, 2019

Jul 05, 2019 Comments Off by

It was hot and sunny on the river yesterday. There were fish to be found even midday in the shade and the cooler water near the dams. Evening fishing is still a good choice to get out of the heat. We have a few thunderstorms in the forecast today and slightly cooler temperatures projected after Saturday. If you’re fishing for trout, check the water temperature before you fish. Bring your summer mix of sulphurs, cahills, isonychias with you. Don’t forget a small olive and caddis pattern as well.
