Delaware River Report / Conditions – June 22, 2011

Wow did we get hit with a large thunderstorm early this morning! Shook the lodge, and pelted us with rain, and the fog is currently so dense that we can’t even see the river! This is supposed to burn off within the next few hours, and we are expecting a cool, yet humid day, with more thunderstorms dropping significant rainfall today, so check the graphs (links below) for up-to-the-minute flows. The low pressure and cooler temps should help with the bug activity, and keep the upper main stem fishing as well!
