Delaware River Report / Conditions June 24, 2019

Jun 24, 2019 Comments Off by

It seemed like yesterday took longer to get going than the day before but that was likely due to the bright sunshine.  People did catch fish during the day but the fish seemed more reluctant to get steady.  Shaded areas produced best early.  There are still some green drakes, sulphurs, cahills, isonychia, and cornutas hatching.  Today should be even better with good cloud cover, air temp in the mid 70’s, and wind from the South at 5 – 10 mph.  The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls flow dropped back under 1,000 cfs opening up more areas or wading.  The releases are still high and the night time air temps are still dropping into the 50’s keeping the rivers cold.
