Delaware River Report / Conditions June 9, 2016

We had some rain showers yesterday morning but the heaviest precipitation fell to the south. The rivers are dropping down to the levels we had before Sunday’s rain and are fine for floating or wading. The cool nights have helped to lower the water temperatures throughout the system. The East Branch and Main Stem are finally cooling down. Today looks like a sunnier version of yesterday with strong wind gusts and another cool evening. The hatching remains the same with Sulphurs, Isos, Tan Caddis and Olives.

Jared netted a brown yesterday.
