Delaware River Report / Conditions June 19, 2014

Jun 19, 2014 Comments Off by

We are starting off this morning with some precipitation that varies from a light mist to very light rain- a perfect way to start the day.  It hasn’t amounted to much so far and the rivers are still dropping and are wadeable and floatable.  We should keep the cloud cover until the afternoon and thankfully the air temp should stay in a comfortable range today.  We are still seeing a mix of sulphurs, stenos, tan caddis, and the Isonychias.  Nymphing should be good this morning with the cloud cover but I wouldn’t be surprised to find some fish rising, especially in the larger pools.  If it doesn’t look like anything is on the water but the fish are rising sporadically take a close look for steno spinners left over from last night.
