Delaware River Report / Conditions June 24, 2014

Jun 24, 2014 Comments Off by

The weather worked in our favor yesterday with some decent cloud cover until late afternoon.  Nymphing was productive in the morning and by late evenign we started to see a mix of sulphurs, stenos, and Isonychias.  At least for me yesterday was the opposite of the weekend with most of our fish eating #18 sulphurs and not the Isos.  By evening the fish were happy and most of the people we saw had some targets to work with- Pretty good for the end of June.  Today is going to be a little warmer with a possible thunderstorm.  The humidy will be up but it shouldn’t feel too bad on the river.  Cannonsville was 97.8% yesterday and the water temperature is 56 degrees at the Hancock Bridge.
