Delaware River Report / Conditions August 21, 2013

Aug 21, 2013 Comments Off by

Oddly enough, yesterday went just as expected – a bit of activity whilst the fog hung around, but after the sun came out, the upper river was the place to be (especially when the sporadic clouds rolled through). As the sun dropped in the late afternoon, the bugs started in earnest, with the fish ignoring the olives coming off, and instead focusing on the sulphurs and hebes rolling down the river. Today is slated to be the warmest day of the week, but we are expecting additional clouds as well, which is always a good thing. The fog should appear in the evening, but fortunately it has not been as dense as usual, and will allow you to fish all the way into dark!
