Delaware River Report / Conditions June 11, 2016

Jun 11, 2016 Comments Off by

We are coming off another cool night so water temperatures look great throughout the system.  The water temperature in Callicoon peaked in the mid 60’s yesterday which is great for mid-June.  We should have some cloud cover today with an 80% chance of precipitation around 1 PM.  Rainfall totals should be around 1/4″ which will help keep the rivers in good shape.  Winds will be manageable with gusts around 10 mph.  All in all it looks like a good fishing day.
Sulphurs, Isonychias, and caddis.  You may run into flushes of cahills depending on what river section you fish.  Nymphing has been working well in the morning before the hatches begin.  Today’s forecast says Blue Winged Olives so carry that box with light and dark flies #16 -24 just in case.
