Delaware River Report: June 22, 2022

Yesterday’s rain missed us and the rivers are starting out today at pretty much the same flows and temps as yesterday. We had decent sulphur and cahills in the late afternoon and evening. There are still caddis around but sulphur and cahill emergers seemed to be what the fish were looking for. If you see decent hatching and no fish on top try swinging your emerger patterns. We have a bit of sun this morning but we should see good cloud cover roll in with the possibility of some afternoon showers. We should only see .02″ of rain with bit more coming overnight. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the South.
