Delaware River Report / Conditions June 30, 2011

Wow – almost July, and it still feels a bit like spring fishing. The West Branch had tons of bugs throughout the day yesterday, but also tons of people, due to the Beaverkill anglers being forced onto our river – you guys know who you are! Despite the pressure there were some nice fish caught, and with the Main Stem clearing, we are looking forward to a great day system-wide! Now if we could just get a few more clouds……..
