Delaware River Report / Conditions September 13, 2018

Sep 13, 2018 Comments Off by

We had some light rain yesterday but not enough to bring up the river flows- they are still dropping this morning.  We have some color in the West Branch but it is clear enough for the fish to eat.   Streamers seemed to be the best bet yesterday.  There were small olives hatching and some fish were eating off the surface sporadically. Look for slow tailouts or long slow edges where the fish can set up.  The dry fly action should get more consistent as the water drops over the next couple of days.  There are some scattered thunderstorms in the area today but the forecasted rain total is only .03″.
