Delaware River Report / Conditions June 3, 2019

Jun 03, 2019 Comments Off by

Yesterday was a bit of a struggle at times but overall the rivers seemed to fish well – especially in the evening after the rain.  Caddis, cahills, gray fox, march browns, and sulphurs all floated past us.  A few fish were steady but there were a lot of random eaters that you had to pick out and cover a number of times to get them to eat.  Caddis and sulphur patterns produced the most fish for us but we did find a few willing to take the bigger bugs.  A band of heavy rain came through in the evening but it was short lived and the rivers look fine this morning.  We’re still at the best wading levels we’ve seen since last July plus we’re a decent floating level too.  There’s no rain in the forecast for today but we should have cooler air temps reaching 56 degrees.  There may be some wind gusts mid afternoon but they should drop back in the evening.
