Delaware River Report / Conditions June 17, 2011

The patchy cloud cover yesterday kept the water cool, and the bugs hatching. Both the West and the Main saw fairly consistent action throughout the day, as well as a great rush of activity in the evening. Fish on the East Branch were eager to rise, so long as the bugs were popping (which was  a bit more sporadic than we cared for). Clouds, rain, and possible t-storms in the forecast today, which means low pressure, good hatching, and hopefully fish all day!
