Delaware River Report / Conditions June 7, 2014

Yesterday fished well from the afternoon on- lots of Gray Fox, some March Browns, Green Drakes, and Sulphurs.  The fish were looking up- even if they weren’t steady they were catch-able if you could mark them and be patient.  The system has cleared after the rain earlier in the week and everything is now wadeable and in good shape.  We have some sun predicted for today with temps around 80 degrees.  Nymphing may be the best bet during the day until we get some shade on the river or the sun drops in the late afternoon.
