Delaware River Report / Conditions May 6, 2019

May 06, 2019 Comments Off by

Yesterday fished well.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and apple caddis (the caddis are on some sections of river- not others).  The clouds stuck around all day and even when the sky looked really threatening the rain held off and the wind stayed low.  Some of the fish are getting picky so presentation is playing a bigger role each day.  We are finding some spinners so keep an eye out for spinner falls even during the hatch.  Today’s forecast looks great.  Winds light and variable, sunshine, and an air temp near 70 degrees.  We’d like to see a few more clouds stick around but it’s going to be a beautiful day out there.  We had just enough rain fall that the river flows are pretty much the same as yesterday morning.
