Delaware River Report / Conditions September 15, 2014

Yesterday was cool with more sun but the olives still hatched in the afternoon bringing fish to the surface.  There were some dark caddis, Isonychias and Cahill type mayflies on the water but the fish seemed keyed on the olives.  The shaded sections of the river fished well early plus a few fish were still chasing streamers in the higher flows on the West Branch.  Accuweather is calling for cooler air temps and sun today so it should fish the same as yesterday.  Tomorrow looks great with some rain moving in overnight.  The West Branch temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 49 degrees this morning.
