Delaware River Report / Conditions August 10, 2017

Aug 10, 2017 Comments Off by

Today will pretty much be like yesterday.  We’re looking at more sun today with warmer air temperatures.  Winds look less than 5 mph.  Mid-day dry fly action should be best above Hale Eddy.  Nymphing will be better below Hale.  The dry fly action on the lower river will pick up towards evening.  Think shade and drop offs.  Besides the sulphurs and olives of every size carry a few cahills, isonychias, and golden drakes. Keep an eye out for flying ants.  We usually look for real humid weather but it’s about that time of year.  The water temperatures on the lower East Branch, lower Beaverkill, and Mainstem all shot up yesterday due to the sun and air temps.  They are starting off warm this morning.  Let’s give them a break.
