Delaware River Report / Conditions June 1, 2011

H-O-T yesterday. Nothing really more to tell – bugs in the morning and the evening, with some fish active on caddis during the heat of the day. Drakes have been hatching, and we are seeing sporadic spinner falls of both coffin flies and dortheas (sulphurs). A new flow plan takes effect today, but we have yet to see any results thus far – hopefully we will get a 500+ CFS release by the end of the day today!
