Delaware River Report / Conditions June 20, 2014

We are beginning to get some reports of the normal mid day sulphur hatches but the bugs have been spotty so far.  The hatching should increase and settle in over th enext few wekks bringing us our normal summer fishing with sulphurs, Isonychias, and olives.  There were flushes of insects on the West Branch yesterday but you had to be in the right place at the right time to capitalize.  A lot of the decent fishing has been at dark or in the dark so don’t leave the river early- especially on a bright day with no wind.  The spinners have to show.
