Delaware River Report / Conditions August 13, 2019

Aug 13, 2019 No Comments by

We’re getting a break from the sunshine today.  The clouds are out this morning but the chance of rain has dropped to 30% with no real accumulation.  Overnight we may see .03″ according to Wunderground.  Rain would have been nice but we’ll take the clouds.  Bring a rain coat just in case.  The air temp will be in the high 70’s with wind 5 – 10 mph from the  South.  Overall it will be a nice day on the water.  The bigger fish may feel more comfortable rising without the sunshine.  Sulphurs, olives, and isonychias are still making up the bulk of the hatching.

Water temps are hot on the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, the East Branch at Fishs Eddy, and the Mainstem at Lordville.  Give the fish a break in those areas and fish colder water.
