Delaware River Report: June 18, 2022

It’s much cooler this morning and the air temp will only climb to 57 degrees. odd fro mid June but better than 95 and sunny. We should see good cloud cover and wind 10 – 20 mph from the North. So not bad except for the wind. Nymphing or swinging wet swill be a good bet early. If the sulphurs, cahills, and olives hatch try to find a spot protected by the wind. Blind casting Isonychias in the riffles could also pay off.
