Delaware River Report / Conditions June 10, 2019

Jun 10, 2019 Comments Off by

Yesterday was a little cooler than Saturday but we had the same bright sunshine for most of the day.  Nymphing and swinging wets worked best during the day with some dry fly action at dark.  The better hatching during the day will be in the areas with cooler water temperatures.  We already have some clouds this morning and that should increase as we get towards noon.  Some rain showers start then but we should see only around 1/4″ of rain during the day.  It looks like a great day to be on the water.  More rain is coming over night.  We should see between 1/2″ and 3/4″ fall.  Some of the rivers need the water so right now this is a positive.  We’ve been dry for a week so a lot of it should soak into the ground.  Olives, cahills, sulphurs, and caddis should be out there today.  We are seeing green drakes on some sections plus a few coffin flies.  The colder river sections will still have some march browns and gray fox.

The East Branch at Fishs Eddy and the Mainstem at Callicoon both peaked at 70 degrees or above yesterday.  The Mainstem at Lordville and the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls both peaked over 68 degrees yesterday.  It’s time to give fish in those areas a break and fish the colder river sections instead.
