Delaware River Report: May 19, 2022

This is the cool time of year when you can fish the Hendrickson Remnants on some river sections and move to fish the sulphurs on other river sections. Plus a lot of caddis and a few march browns in the mix. It seemed to take a while to get going yesterday but most people found rising fish. We have light rain falling this morning that should total less than 1/10″. 70 degrees with wind 10 – 15 from the south. The wind may shift from the West in the afternoon. We may see some afternoon thunderstorms. there are no weather warnings on those so hopefully they slide south of us like usual.
