Delaware River Report / Conditions August 11, 2017

Aug 11, 2017 Comments Off by

Today looks like a really good day to be on the water.  We have cloud cover already.  Winds should be light and stay under 10 mph.  There is a chance of a couple storms moving through but so far there isn’t much on the radar.  Wunderground is showing the best potential for storms is overnight so hopefully we will keep the clouds, low wind, and maybe a light rain.  The aair temperature is staying in the 70’s today.  It definitely looks like an olive day but we’ve been seeing decent sulphurs and cahills on these types of days so have those patterns handy.  Golden Drakes are showing here and there too.  The overcast sky should help the nymphing on the lower West Branch before the hatching starts.
