Delaware River Report / Conditions June 23, 2014

Jun 23, 2014 Comments Off by

We’re coming off another cool night which is great news for the river system.  The water temperature at the Hancock Bridge is 55 degrees this morning and as of 6/20 Cannonsville was 98.4% capacity.  Today is going to a little warmer with air temps in the low 80s with a slight chance of some T Storms – hopefully bring in some clouds this afternoon.  Everyone fished late yesterday and found some sulphurs with a few Isonychias mixed in the riffles.  The mayflies still seem to be coming in flushes last a couple of hours but the fish are eating them.  Nymphing is best early before the sun really hits the water but offers your best chance of landing a fish even during the mid – day stretch.  There are good numbers of tan caddis plus a few cornutas around so keep an eye on the riffles in the morning.

West Branch water temps are still holding on in late June!
