Delaware River Report / Conditions September 12, 2014

Sep 12, 2014 Comments Off by

The light rain and overcast conditions were great for the mayflies yesterday but the wind put a damper on the rising activity.  There were decent numbers of olives mixed with a few Isonychias and Summer Stenos but you had to hunt and be patient to find fish rising.  The fish were chasing streamers with some of them eating them and others just flashing.  all in all not a bad day for early September.  We’re coming off a cool night and the water temperatures have dropped a few degrees throughout the system.  We are looking at some clouds coming through today and a light storm  coming in overnight giving us a few sporadic showers over the weekend.  The release from Cannonsville is 989 cfs until further notice.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is a cool 52 degrees this morning.
