Delaware River Report: June 4, 2022

Yesterday was another bright sunny day. It was a beautiful day to be on the water but a few clouds would have helped the fishing. Nymphing was better in the morning with some dry fly action in the evening. There were a few spots with active caddis in the afternoon. Caddis, march browns, gray fox, sulphurs, cahills, brown drakes, and green drakes are all on the water. We’ve had decent spinner falls in the last week so definitely keep that box handy. Today will be another sunny one but the air temp will peak around 74 degrees. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the North.
