Delaware River Report / Conditions August 7, 2017

Aug 07, 2017 Comments Off by

The river cleared up pretty well and we had some sun poking through the clouds in the afternoon.  We’re in our normal summer program so afternoon sulphurs and olives on the upper river sections and evening olives and cahills on the lower sections. Clouds and rain will push the bugs a little earlier on the lower sections. Nymphing is definitely better on the lower sections due to the algae in Deposit.  We’re coming off a cool night and the daytime temperatures will stay in the low to mid 60’s today.  So far we’ve only had a brief shower but we should see more rain over the next few hours.  They have been decreasing the predicted rain totals since yesterday.  This should be a decent streamer day on the lower West Branch but we should see some decent dry fly action too.
