Delaware River Report / Conditions September 15, 2017

Sep 15, 2017 Comments Off by

We were hit by a very brief storm in the the early evening but the rivers look fine this morning.  The West Branch flows barely budged and remain pretty much the same as yesterday morning.  The Beaverkill flows didn’t budge the the East Branch saw a small bump overnight.  The Mainstem is climbing slowly but should level out by mid- day.  Everything looks clear in Hancock.  There were a few olives out and some white flies on the Mainstem.  Nymphing or swinging wet flies is definitely the way to go during the day.  Were should keep some clouds around this morning with some periods of sunshine.  It looks like the storms are done and we’re in for a few days of nice Fall weather.
