Delaware River Report / Conditions June 19, 2011

Yesterday sure was a ‘weird’ one here on the river – hot during the day, but clouds and cooler in the evening, but few bugs decided to pop. The West was a bit too cold up top, and the East and Main were a bit warm. We are looking at more cloud cover today, which will hopefully get us to that Goldilocks zone: just right! The bugs that were hatching remain the same – Isos, Sulphurs, and Pseudos, with the occasional Steno thrown in for good measure!
