Delaware River Report: July 5, 2022

Today looks like a good fishing day with some rain coming through this morning totaling .25″. We already have good cloud cover. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the south. That’s not ideal but much better than 85 and blazing sunshine. So look for places that will block the wind and it should be fine. Hopefully the rain pushes the olives and sulphurs to hatch a little earlier in the day. Some sections may see fog but the wind should actually help clear that. No real change in hatches so sulphurs, cahills, and olives. Plus some Isonychias.

The East Branch at Fishs Eddy, The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, and the Mainstem at Lordville all peaked over 70 degrees yesterday. It’s time to give these sections a break until we get cooler temps.

Slate Drake – 12-2xl – 12- Isonychia bicolor
Sulphur – #16 – 20 – E. dorothea
