River Report / Conditions – June 11, 2020

June 11, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

We are shifting into our summer hatches with Isonychia starting to show, and Sulphurs hatching at various times throughout the day, and well into the evening hours. Nymphing during the slow periods has been producing some nice fish. Having a variety of spinner patterns in your boxes will be important as the heavy surface activity has been taking place as the light fades from the valleys.

We had some much needed rain pass through overnight and into the morning which bumped the flows slightly, but the system remains wade-able. Expect to see some color make its way down from the tributaries as the day progresses.

The lower sections of the rivers are starting out near 70* today, so make sure to check temps when planning your excursions.

The fly shop is now open for curbside pick-up and limited foot traffic. We are looking forward to seeing you all and hearing how your season has gone thus far.

We have dates available for guided trips! Give us a call will any questions about booking a fishing trip on the Upper Delaware River!
