Delaware River Report: June 11, 2022

The river flows have dropped a bit from runoff and everything looks good this morning. We’re seeing a few bugs during the day but the best dry fly fishing has been late afternoon into dark. We’re seeing more Isonychias mixed with the sulphurs and Cahills. There have been some olives mixed in too. Wunderground is calling for 74 degrees with clouds moving in during the afternoon. Wind will be light and variable. Hopefully they have it correct.
