Delaware River Report / Conditions June 17, 2017

Jun 17, 2017 Comments Off by

The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 401 under Chart 4E.  The rain also gave the rivers a very slight bump but everything remains in good shape this morning.  Yesterday was a great day of comfortable air temperatures and cloud cover.  It paid to be patient but there were good numbers of fish eating caddis, olives, isonychias, and then sulphurs in the evening.  Some of the fish are getting a little picky in the low water so watch your cast and try smaller flies first.  Nymphing is still decent in the lower flows- especially with the low light conditions.   It looks like we’ll see similar weather today with less than 1/4″ of rain.  The forecast seems to be changing every time we look so keep an eye on it.


Every bump in flow is a bonus
