Delaware River Report / Conditions June 6, 2021

Jun 06, 2021 No Comments by

Yesterday was a tough one with the sun and heat combination.  Early and really later were the best periods for dry fly fishing.  Nymphing was definitely the best bet during the day.  The wind definitely did not help anyone out there.  Today will be hot and sunny again but at least the wind will only be 5 – 10 mph from the South.  If you see bugs during the day and no risers in the pools concentrate on the broken water where they’ll feel more comfortable to rise.  Nymph and / or swing wets in that same water.

 The lower East Branch, lower Beaverkill, and Mainstem will be too hot to fish today.  Please give these rivers a break and fish the cold water areas.
