Delaware River Report / Conditions July 27, 2017

Jul 27, 2017 Comments Off by

The rivers are still dropping and are looking better today.  The West Branch, Upper East, and Beaverkill all look good this morning.  The lower East and Main are still off color but improving.  Olives an sulphurs are still the main fare with a few cahills and isonychias mixed in for good measure.  Tricos and a few Potomanthus are around but not in large numbers yet.  Today looks like a good olive day with great cloud cover this morning.  We may see an afternoon / early evening shower but the precipitation amounts should be negligible.  The wind forecast looks ideal peaking around 6 mph.  Swinging wets has been productive before the hatches.
