Delaware River Report / Conditions May 14, 2020

We are now allowed to guide one client at a time in Pennsylvania.  If you would like a solo guided trip or guided trip with an immediate family member from the same household, send us an email at flyfish@thedelawareriverclub.com or call 570-635-5880 and we’ll try to fit you in.

It seems like a funny complaint but yesterday afternoon was a bit too sunny.  Things picked up in the late afternoon and we saw good apple caddis, blue quills, and hendricksons.  Today looks much better.  We’re starting off with some frost on the ground but we should see 68 degrees today.  Wind will be light at 5 – 10 mph from the South.  Wunderground has the clouds moving in around lunchtime but no rain until just about dark.  We’ll see around 1/4″ fall overnight.

We are following the State’s order and the shop is still closed to walk in business.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:  https://drc-fly-shop.myshopify.com

Curbside pickup is now a shipping option in the online store.
