Delaware River Report / Conditions August 11, 2012

Plenty of clouds and rain (finally!) out there yesterday, but unfortunately it did not add a great deal of water to the river flows. On a major high note however, the cloud cover and cool temps kept the river from baking all day, and allowed those who ventured out to enjoy one of the best days on the river we have had in weeks. The olives were fairly steady, and the remaining Dortheas made an appearance as well. Today, we’re starting out with real clouds (not just fog), which will hopefully carry over into the afternoon, when we are expecting some typical summer thunderstorms as we get towards dark. Remember to keep those rods down!

Give it another month and we’ll start seeing Browns with this kind of coloration!
