Delaware River Report / Conditions June 6, 2019

Jun 06, 2019 Comments Off by

We had a couple of rain bands move through yesterday afternoon but the rivers are finally and the flows barely bumped overnight.  We are still seeing a lot of bugs on the water and the fish are eating.  Nymphing has been effective during the day but there are fish rising especially in shaded areas.  The top water action picks up as the sun starts to drop behind the hills.  If Wunderground is correct we should see mostly clouds today hopefully bringing the fish to the surface earlier. Wind will be 5 – 10 from the North with the air temp reaching 71 degrees.  All of the rivers are decent for wading now and the little bump on the Beaverkill flows is good for that river.  Levels are still decent for floating too.  Swinging wet flies could be an effective method early today with all of the caddis and Epeorus hatching.
