Delaware River Report: June 17, 2022

The remaining thunderstorms missed us and the rivers look in good shape this morning. There is a tint in the lower West but we have a couple of feet of visibility so no problem. the flows are dropping slowly as the runoff subsides. Every river is in good shape for wading and floating. We should see our normal sulphur hatches with cahills and olives mixed in. There are Isonychias around so definitely keep those in your box. Wundergound is calling for 79 degrees and partly cloudy. Wind will be 10 – 20 mph from the North.
