Delaware River Report / Conditions May 28, 2019

May 28, 2019 Comments Off by

The dry fly action was a little slower yesterday with the bright sun but fish were landed.  Overall nymphing produced more fish.  There were some caddis on the water mixed with small hendricksons, gray fox, and a couple of march browns.  We did see a couple of sulphurs so have that box ready this week.  Today looks like better fishing weather with clouds and some heavy mist this already this morning.  We may see some localized thunderstorms this afternoon with heavier rain so check the radar.  All of the rivers in the system are at decent wade levels this morning.  We haven’t seen that since last July.  Floating is still good on the lower EB, WB, and Mainstem.
