Delaware River Report / Conditions September 14, 2017

We were hit with some rain in the evening and again overnight but it all soaked right into the ground.  The river flows dropped slightly overnight and are running clear this morning.  The was some decent hatching in the evening and once again it was ruled by the olives. The normal cahills / stenos, isonychias, and heptagenia provided some filler but the olives were the main meat.  If you are far enough down on the Main there are still some white flies coming off at dark too so definitely have a few of those spinners down there.  Today should be cooler with the potential of some more rain in the afternoon.  Overall it doesn’t look like much precipitation so we should come through just fine.  The clouds and light rain should help the fish feel more comfortable eating on the surface today. Winds look light topping out around 6 mph.
