Delaware River Report / Conditions May 31, 2019

May 31, 2019 Comments Off by

Everyone seemed to find good hatching and good fish yesterday.  The hatches varied depending on what section you were on but there were decent numbers of caddis, hendrickson spinners, march browns, and fishable numbers of gray fox and sulphurs.  The rain held off until after dark.  The total precip was not much and the rivers look fine this morning.  There are a lot of wade opportunities on the system now and we are still floating.  We’ll have sunshine with an air temp around 70 degrees today.  Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North.  Sounds like another good day to be on the water.
