Delaware River Report / Conditions June 12, 2019

Jun 12, 2019 Comments Off by

The wind was a killer yesterday.  While a few protected areas had some fish sporadically eating on top it was really a nymphing / wet fly day until dark.  Even the caddis stayed in the bushes until dark.  The river flows are quickly dropping back to normal levels.  Even the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls is wadeable this morning at 761 cfs.  The weather looks better too with 71 degrees, wind 10 mph from the South, and partly cloudy skies.  There are still some march browns and gray fox around – plus people are running into coffin flies at night.  The green drakes may be hatching at night but every day is different so definitely have a few on you.  Cahiils, sulphurs, and caddis should also be on the water today.
