Delaware River Report / Conditions May 31, 2021

May 31, 2021 Comments Off by

There were a lot of bugs on the water yesterday afternoon and the fish seemed really happy about it.  Everyone we saw had targets.  It seemed to die off early in the cold weather but hopefully today’s warmer weather extends the evening fishing.  It was a good mix of sulphurs, blue wing olives, gray fox, march browns, and cahills.  Plus some  river sections had green drakes.  A little rain this morning will give way to some sunshine this afternoon.  The air temp will hit 68 degrees.  Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the North.
