Delaware River Report: June 19, 2022

Wunderground nailed the cooler temps and wind. The river temps dropped quite a bit with the cold overnight temps. We’ll hit 66 degrees today with sun so they should climb back up by late afternoon. Nymphing or swinging wets will still be your best bet early. Some people worked smaller streamers. Sulphurs and cahills should still hatch. find a spot out of the wind in the evening. Wind will be 15 – 25 mph out of the North. Tonight the air temp will drop into the mid 40’s again.

Last night’s cold really helped the water temps
