Delaware River Report / Conditions July 30, 2017

Jul 30, 2017 Comments Off by

The water temps dropped a few degrees throughout the system due to the nighttime temperatures in the 50’s.  The rivers have dropped back a little as the runoff subsides and everything looks good this morning.  Once again the hatches were dominated by small olives and sulphurs but some sections had decent numbers of golden drakes.  We should have clear weather to day with light winds.  Nymphing or swinging wet flies may be a good bet early.  Mid day look for sulphurs and olives on the upper West Branch.  Once the sun drops behind the hills the dry fly fishing should pick up on the lower sections of river.
