Delaware River Report / Conditions May 16, 2014

The system fished well yesterday in between the wind gusts and in the evening when it finally calmed down.  A decent mix of hendricksons, olives, and caddis had the fish up and happy.  Nymphing and swinging wet flies also produced fish.  There were some hendrickson spinners mixed in throughout the day so take a close look at the water when fish are working.  It seems like most of the predicted rain missed us last night so the rivers are in good shape this morning.
