Delaware River Report / Conditions June 30, 2020

Jun 30, 2020 No Comments by

Today looks like one of the better days to be on the water.  We woke up to light rain and good cloud cover.  The light rain should end this morning and we may see some thunderstorms this afternoon.  Total rainfall should be less than 1/4″.  This is so much better than the sunshine we’ve be dealing with most of June.  Hopefully the olives hatch early today.  Daytime dry fly action has been best in the coldest water.  Sulphurs, tiny olives, and a lot of light blue winged olives have been around lately.  Isonychias and light cahills are accounting for some fish in the evening.

The lower Beaverkill, lower East Branch, and Mainstem temperatures all peaked over 70 degrees yesterday.   Give those rivers a break until they cool down.
