Delaware River Report / Conditions May 26, 2014

May 26, 2014 Comments Off by

The #16 Hendricksons continued on the WB yesterday offering some decent fishing, especially in the evening.  The EB and MS turned on in the evening and most of the fish were not picky.  A #14 -16 Rusty Spinner worked well.  The thunderstorms never developed here and we received just a small sprinkle in the afternoon so the rivers continue to drop to wadeable levels.  Stilesville is now under 1000 cfs and the Beaverkill / Willowemoc look great.  The March Brown / Gray Fox continue to hatch and it won’t be long before the fish recognize the big bugs as food.
