Delaware River Report: June 13, 2022

We had a little rain in the late afternoon into dark but essentially there was no change to the river flows. The West Branch at Hale Eddy is up 45 cfs and is perfectly clear out front. The other river flows didn’t bump at all. Yesterday’s cloud cover helped push some bugs early and made the fish comfortable. Some spots had lighter hatches than what we’ve seen but the bugs and fish were there. Sulphurs are still making up the bulk of the mayflies on the water with some cahills, Isonychias, and olives in the mix. Caddis have been moving around in the mornings and evenings. We should hit 77 degrees today with cloud cover in the morning with more sun in the afternoon. Wind 5 – 10 mph from the North.
