Delaware River Report: July 7, 2022

The clouds stuck around longer than expected yesterday. The sun finally popped out in the afternoon but not as much as Wunderground projected. The cloud cover was good for fishing and made being on the water all day a little easier. There aremid afternoon sulphurs in the coldest river sections with some cahills and Isonychias. Caddis are around in the morning along with some left over spinners in the bigger pools. Once the sun drops the lower river sections are seeing some sulphurs, cahills, and small olives. Today should be similar to yesterday except we shouldn’t have any wind. The clouds will burn off in the afternoon and the air temp will hit 80 degrees.

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