Delaware River Report / Conditions August 21, 2017

Aug 21, 2017 Comments Off by

Yesterday started off with decent fog and clouds blocking the sun.  That gave way to sun in the afternoon.  The West Branch fished well with streamers before the sun broke through.  We’ve been starting with dark patterns and then switching to light based on the fish’s mood.  In the afternoon people were catching some fish blind casting bigger olives and cahills.  The river flows have dropped back to better levels and we are clearing.  We are definitely clear enough to fish and the West should continue to drop slowly this morning.  It’s going to be a mix of clouds and sun today and a little warmer than yesterday.
