Delaware River Report / Conditions June 26, 2019

Jun 26, 2019 Comments Off by

We lost the cloud cover earlier than we wished yesterday but the rivers still fished well.  Sulphurs, cahills, caddis, and isonychias made up most of the food.  Lots of different caddis out there.  There are still a few green drakes around- especially in the colder water areas but that hatch is definitely waning on most of the system.  The Isonychias are making up for that.  It was a hot one so it was nice to be on the water and feel the cool air.  The release from Cannonsville has been dropped slightly to 1,097 cfs opening a few more spots to wading.  the best wading opportunities are still on the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, and upper East Branch.  We’ll have more sunshine today so look for areas that get shade early in the day.  The air temp will be in the low 80’s with wind from the South 5- 10 mph.  We may see some scattered thunderstorms in the late afternoon.  Those are always unpredictable so don’t count on them but bring a raincoat.  If we’re lucky we’ll get some good cloud cover and not much else.
