Delaware River Report: June 3, 2022

The river flows have dropped a bit since yesterday but everything is in good shape. The overcast sky and cooler air temps have helped the water temps drop a few degrees. Hopefully we see some mid day caddis in the sun. Most of the mayfly activity has been in the evening into dark with some shots in the afternoon. Caddis, march browns, gray fox, sulphurs, cahills, brown drakes, and green drakes. Definitely have your coffin flies. We’ll hit 75 degrees today with sunshine and wind 10 – 15 mph from the North.
