Delaware River Report / Conditions August 15, 2017

So far today looks like a decent one.  The flows have dropped back and we woke up to a light rain.  We should see intermittent clouds and sun with a chance of a small thunderstorm.  Winds should stay around 6 mph according to Accuweather.  Precipitation should be less than 1/10″.  This feels like an olive day.  Otherwise we are in the same pattern of olives and sulphurs on the upper river sections and olives in the evening on the lower sections.  There is a shot of Golden Drakes and Cahills (a lot of Stenocrons) on any section.  We are even finding some Cahills mixed with the White Flies down in Callicoon while we’re smallmouth fishing.
