Delaware River Report / Conditions June 2, 2011

The heat has broken here in Starlight – unfortunately, the wind has taken its place. We are looking at northwest winds (mostly downstream) at about 15MPH, with gusts in the 40MPH range. Not ideal dry fly conditions, but the pressure change should get the bugs up and moving, and the influx of cold water from Cannonsville can only help as well!
