Delaware River Report / Conditions June 25, 2013

The stormy weather yesterday became quite a pleasant surprise, with cloud cover throughout most of the afternoon, and just a few passing thunderstorms to wait out. The bugs certainly loved it, and were popping all over the Upper West Branch. Down here we were seeing them, but not in as large a number as they had upstream. The fish were active, and definitely less spooky than the day before. Today we’re looking at some pretty similar conditions, with some excellent clouds hanging over us as we speak. With air temps down slightly, we could see even a bigger rush of sulphurs and isos starting earlier in the day.
