The clouds stuck around longer than we expected yesterday but we did see some sunshine in the afternoon.  Today will be 82 degrees with clouds giving way to sun.  We’ll have a little more humidity with wind 6 mph from the South.  Writing that out it sounds like a good day for flying ants.  It eould be better if we had some rain early giving way to sun but we’ll take what we get.  Definitely have the ants handy in the afternoon just in case.  Otherwise it’s still the small olives, isonychia, caddis, and a few heptagenias.  If the sun really pops out it stick around until after it drops behind the hills for the best shot at dries.  Otherwise nymphing / wets have been the way to go during the day.

We’re going to leave this up for a bit because it’s important.

The PA Fish and Boat Commissions Conservation Acquisition Partnership Program came up on a fishing forum yesterday and it sounds like a great idea that could use some promotion. It was created by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission to solicit and accept donations to be used solely to obtain additional access to Pennsylvania’s water.

While you can’t earmark donations specifically for the Upper Delaware every bit of help the Commission gets benefits us.
