Delaware River Report / Conditions June 2, 2019

Jun 02, 2019 Comments Off by

The rain held off until dark last night leaving us with a mix of clouds and sun all day.  There were fewer bugs out than Friday but there were enough to keep the fish happy and eating.  Most people did well with some really nice fish landed.  Dry flies, nymphs, and wet flies all put fish in the net.  It was a great way to start off June.  The rain did little to the river flows and things look good this morning.  The rivers are at decent levels for floating and wading.  Today’s weather looks similar to yesterday with some scattered thunderstorms moving through but not dropping a lot of rain.  We should see a little over 1/4″ of rain, wind 5 – 10 from the South, and an air temp near 70 degrees.  A good fishing day.
