Delaware River Report / Conditions September 14, 2013

Definitely a mixed bag out on the water yesterday. Tricos were spotted pool to pool throughout the morning (i.e. one would fish, another wouldn’t), and then there were good but sporadic olive hatches throughout the day on the West, tapering off in evening once the air temps started to drop. We had a cold overnight last night, which means our bugs will not likely show until later on in the morning today, and with “partly cloudy” skies predicted, we’ll likely be seeing more hebes and stenos in the mid-day than olives. The Isos are starting back up, so they are definitely a threat as well! River levels are steady, and very wadeable, with great clarity out there (just a hint of color!). Looks like it could be a fantastic start to the weekend!
