Delaware River Report / Conditions September 14, 2020

Sep 14, 2020 Comments Off by

Today sounds comfortable with a high of 67 degrees and a few clouds.  Wind will be up a bit around 1o mph with gusts to 15 mph.  Leaves are still on the trees so it’s possible to fish some wind breaks.  The air temp drops back to 39 degrees tonight which should really help the rivers cool down even more.  It’s still been a lot of tiny olives with a few cahills, caddis, and isonychias.  Some river sections are still seeing some white flies towards dark.  If the wind really picks up today nymphing may be the best bet.  Think small nymphs to match the naturals.

We’re beginning to see a bit of cloudiness in the West Branch from the release.  It’s slight right now and doesn’t bother the fish.  It happens every Fall now when the reservoir begins to turn.
