Delaware River Report / Conditions September 1, 2019

Sep 01, 2019 Comments Off by

September 1st and it’s 49 degrees this morning.  Sections of the river fished well last night with olives and isonychias.  It took a while to get going but we did find some nicer fish rising plus all of the small ones we’ve been seeing.  Today looks good if Wunderground is correct.  We’ll see partly a partly cloudy sky give way to clouds in the afternoon.  The high will hit 73 degrees with wind 5 -1 0 from the south.  There is a 20% chance of rian but only .13″ if it even happens.  Blind casting isos would be a good move until the olives hatch. The weeds in the water from the release bump the other day made nymphing tough in spots but it filtered out enough to make it possible.  The release from Cannonsville has been cut back a bit to 500 cfs.
