Delaware River Report / Conditions June 11, 2018

Jun 11, 2018 Comments Off by

The clouds stuck around all day yesterday.  The sulphur hatches are getting stronger but the timing as been dependent on which river you are fishing.  Some people are reporting huge numbers of sulphurs in the afternoon while others are seeing them in the evening.  Cahills, caddis, and March Browns should round out the menu.  There are still Coffin Flies at night.  We’re seeing some early but the guys who are staying out real late are getting some big payoffs.  They’ve been on some rivers for a while now and should be slowing down.  You may run into some Brown Drakes after dark.  Today looks like a totally different day with an air temp near 70 and sunshine.  Winds should be negligible.  That may push the hatches a little later in the day but the caddis should be happy in the sun.
