Delaware River Report / Conditions August 29, 2017

Aug 29, 2017 Comments Off by

Yesterday was really just an extension of the previous few days.  Nymphing was the most productive method early in the day. We’re still fishing a lot of small nymphs to match the size of the little blue winged olives.  On the upper river sections we are seeing decent olive hatches with a mix of cahills, sulphurs, golden drakes, and a few isonychias.  There are some yellow drakes up there too.  The Mainstem has fished well on days the water temperature holds.  It’s almost the same mix of bugs we’re seeing on the upper West.  Today will be a little cooler with more clouds moving in as the day goes on.  We may see some showers in the evening but right now Accuweather has them hitting after dark.
