Delaware River Report / Conditions September 12, 2018

Sep 12, 2018 Comments Off by

The river flows have dropped quite a bit since yesterday.  The West Branch is flowing 1,770 at Hale Eddy and is fishable.  There is some color in the water but it is clear enough for the fish to eat on top.  Isonychias, olives, and cahills should cover any dry fly action.  Streamer fishing may be good when there isn’t direct sun on the water.  There are some scattered storms in the area today.  It looks like the best chance of precipitation happens overnight.  Scattered usually means they miss us here so hopefully that trend will continue.
