Upper Delaware River Report — June 23, 2010

Yesterday’s rainy weather gives way to a day full of sunshine and a few clouds, with a high of 87º in the forecast for today.  Late night thunderstorms will carry on through tomorrow afternoon, which should make for great fishing tomorrow, especially if yesterday’s weather was any indicator.  Yesterday was an excellent day to be on the water, with angler’s reporting large amounts of bug activity and rising fish.  Tiny BWOs seemed to have done the trick, as well as small Sulphurs.  Today the surface action will be more concentrated to the evening and early morning, so try nymphing during the day or searching with an Iso pattern if you don’t have any targets.
