Upper Delaware River Report – June 8, 2010

Water temperatures are still on the decline with the cool night time air, with highs in the low 70’s to upper 60’s for the next few days the fishing should become far more productive than it has been.  Try and get out on the river a little earlier tonight, with temps in low 50’s the fish should start rising sooner than what the recent trend has been.  Still try Nymphing and Streamer fishing during the day if the sky is clear.  Sulphurs and Caddis are still hatching in good quantities, so be sure to check what bugs are coming off.  If you can’t get them to eat a Sulphur or Caddis, don’t hesitate to try an Iso or a Rusty Spinner.
