Delaware River Report / Conditions June 5, 2019

Jun 05, 2019 Comments Off by

Overall yesterday fished well with decent bugs and rising fish.  Mid day seemed a bit slow for dry fly action but people did find some fish eating caddis and left over spinners.  Things really picked up in the evening with just about every mayfly out there that should be out there this time of year.  The rivers are in great shape this morning with good wade and float opportunities.  Levels are just about perfect.  We should see some clouds come in mid morning sticking around the rest of the day.  A little light rain in the afternoon and 1/4″ of rain overnight.  It looks like a great day to be on the water.
