Delaware River Report / Conditions June 26, 2018

Yesterday morning’s clouds gave way to sun and wind. The river levels have dropped back after Sunday’s thunderstorms and are clear. The wind kept the bugs off the water early in the day but once it dropped there were good numbers of caddis, cahill spinners and sulphurs. There will be plenty of sun today. Look for fish in the shade or eating caddis. Be ready once the sun drops behind the hills.
