Delaware River Report: June 12, 2022

We had a bit more afternoon sun than Wunderground led us to believe but people did find some decent dry fly action in the afternoon. The cool nights have helped keep the water temps in check and everything looks good this morning. Sulphurs made up the bulk of the mayflies n the water with some cahills, Isonychias, and olives in the mix. We’re stil seeing decent numbers of caddis in the bushes so definitely carry those. We should hit 71 degrees today with cloud cover. The rain total should be around .14″ with some thunderstorms possible. Wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.
