Delaware River Report / Conditions May 16, 2017

May 16, 2017 Comments Off by

The hendricksons hatched and the wind blew.  There were fish eating and they were friendly if you could get the fly to them.  All in all not a bad day on the Delaware given the conditions.  The water levels continue to drop and more wading opportunities are opening up.  We are now in a warming spell with air temperatures approaching 70 today with some wind (but less than yesterday).  March browns are moving up the system and hopefully the caddis become more active in the sunshine.
