Delaware River Report / Conditions June 26, 2013

Jun 26, 2013 Comments Off by

It’s rare that we see two pretty much identical days out on the river, but yesterday and Monday were definitely twins. Ok, so maybe fraternal twins, but still twins. Amid the humidity and heat, we definitely had good cloud cover in the afternoon, with a few gentle storms mixed in just to keep it interesting. Sulphurs and Isos were the name of the game again, with a few people finding fish that were taking pseudos amid big dorthea hatches. I guess after all the alewive gorging, the fish are now on a diet! We are expecting similar conditions today weather-wise, but as always we’ll just have to head out on the water and see!
