Delaware River Report / Conditions May 6, 2011

A clear, cool night has brought the river temps down a bit, but the bright sun forecast today should get us back into the 50s early in the day. Both the main stem and West Branch were FULL of bugs yesterday, but unfortunately few risers. The flows have stabilized, so now that the fish are acclimated, we should be in good shape! That being said, here were yesterday’s results:
