Upper Delaware River Report – June 12, 2010

Thunderstorms are in the forecast for the next three days, which will help keep water temperatures down.  Today, we are expecting rain and cloud cover for the entire day. Although flows are still dropping on the East Branch, water temperature is back down into the 60s. Reports from yesterday are that the West Branch and Main Stem continue to fish well, with plenty of targets and lots of bugs on the water from morning until evening.  Look for BWOs, Sulphurs and Isos to be the predominant hatches of the day.
