Delaware River Report: June 14, 2022

Yesterday ended up being clear with sunshine in the afternoon. The bugs did come and we found fish rising. Today looks similar with the air temp hitting 80 degrees and sunshine. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North. Sulphurs have been hatching mid afternoon into dark with some cahills, Isonychias, and olives in the mix. Caddis have been around – especially in low light. Nymphing and swinging wets have both been productive earlier in the day.

The sun and hot temp may push the water temps up on certain stretches today. If you’re on lower river sections please check the water temp before fishing this afternoon.
