Delaware River Report / Conditions June 7, 2018

Jun 07, 2018 Comments Off by

Overall yesterday was a good day on the river.  We had decent clouds, cool weather, and no rain.  There were enough March Browns, Gray Fox, Cahills, and Caddis to get some fish looking up during the day.   Blind casting march Browns is still paying off.  There were olives on the water in the  afternoon but the fish were happy with cahills and caddis.  Some rivers had decent Coffin Fly spinner falls at dark while others seemed to shut down early.  Today will be warmer with a little more sun.  That should bring the caddis out earlier offering some opportunities.  Nymphing and swinging wets should work well today as the insects get active before they hatch.  The cool weather has kept the rivers in great shape.  We have decent water levels all through the system.

Just like we figured Wunderground has downgraded the rain forecast for the weekend.  It now looks like we’ll have great weather with only .08″ of rain Saturday night.
