Delaware River Report / Conditions September 10, 2018

It looks like the overnight rain didn’t add too much water to the river flows.  We have a steady rain coming down this morning.  The forecast is changing hourly and right now they are predicting 1″ of rain over the course of the day.  Hopefully the heavier stuff will slide west of us but this is a pretty large storm on the radar.  If the flows change dramatically we will do another update.

It took a while for the bugs to get going yesterday but by mid afternoon we were fishing a good olive hatch.  #20 – 24 olives were coming off in pretty good numbers on the lower West Branch and the fish were up and happy.  We didn’t hear much about isos or cahills yesterday but the once the olives hatched they more than made up for that.
