Delaware River Report / Conditions August 10, 2015

Aug 10, 2015 Comments Off by

There was little change in the rivers overnight and we are starting off this morning as a carbon copy of yesterday morning.  Things should improve this afternoon as the forecasted thunderstorms move in and the cloud cover increases.  Rain should be negligible during the day with more coming overnight.  We’ve been dry for a few weeks now so most of the rain should soak into the ground.  The West Branch and Upper East Branch continue to be in great shape.  The lower East and Mainstem at Lordville are peaking around 68 – 70 degrees.  If you fish the Mainstem double check the temperatures with a thermometer.  Olives and sulphurs are the most predominant mayflies right now.  Cahills and isonychias are hatching in decent numbers too.  We have been seeing more light bodied olives (#14-16) over the last few days too.
