Delaware River Report / Conditions June 17, 2014

Jun 17, 2014 Comments Off by

The rivers are continuing to drop and should level off over the next few days.  We had a brief rain shower last night but the river remain clear and the levels are great for floating and wading.  Today looks warm with air temps in the high 80’s until more thunderstorms move in this evening.  According to Accuweather we are looking at light winds during the day dropping in the evening = perfect!  It doesn’t look like we will get enough rain to bump the rivers but the clouds will be a welcome sight.  During the day look for caddis in the riffles and blind casting Isonychias is beginning to pay off.  As evening comes we are seeing a mix of sulphurs and stenos into dark..  Nymphing the riffles with smaller pheasant tails and Copper Johns has also been bringing some fish to the net.
