Delaware River Report / Conditions September 14, 2018

Sep 14, 2018 Comments Off by

We had a bit of rain overnight that caused a bump in flows over most of the system.  The flow at Stilesville is still steady at 1,110 cfs.  The flow at Hale Eddy is 1,740 and dropping.  According to Wunderground we should have clouds today but no more rain until Monday.  The rivers should drop back over the next couple of days offering better wade opportunities in the longer, slow pools.  We mostly saw small olives last night mixed with a couple of isonychias.  If you’re looking for dry fly action concentrate on the long slow flats where the fish can set up and eat them.  There is some color in the West Branch still so streamers will be a good bet as the flows drop.
