Delaware River Report / Conditions June 30, 2013

Well, it certainly was a bit tougher out there yesterday than we thought it was going to be. The water clarity was pretty poor on the West Branch, even up river. That being said, take a look at the picture below and you’ll have an idea how much the bugs cared about the clarity. The side of the shop is STILL covered with them this morning, and right towards evening the fish were actually seeing them as well, if you could find the right spot. Today, we have finally had some additional clarity come into the river down here, so it should start to greatly improve throughout the day. Cloud cover, and a few passing showers are all that is in the forecast, so it could definitely turn into a spectacular day!

 

We counted close to 10 different mayfly species on the shop last night and this morning. I guess we know there are still plenty of bugs! Photo: Bart Larmouth
