Delaware River Report: May 26, 2022

We had a little more sun in the afternoon than the forecast called for but the caddis were active along with a few mayflies. Some people are picking up fish blind casting March Brown and Gray fox patterns. The fishing seemed better early in the evening rather than late – at least on some sections. The river flows are starting off this morning about the same as yesterday. Caddis, March Browns, Gray Fox, Cahills, and sulphurs are on the water. Some sections are still seeing the remnants of the Hendrickson spinners. Today will be 74 degrees, mainly cloudy, with wind 10 – 20 from the South

Bennett found them on caddis in the sunshine
