Delaware River Report / Conditions September 15, 2021

Sep 15, 2021 No Comments by

The release from Cannonsville was increased and the flow at Stilesville is 1,330 and climbing this morning.  So far we’ve had a few showers but not enough to affect the river conditions.  Wunderground shows around 1/2″ of rain today mainly from thunderstorms.  Wading will be tough without the rain so definitely keep a close eye on the river gauges below.  The increased release on the West Branch may increase the tint of the water but it will be fishable.  Streamers may be a good option- especially if we get hit with the rain.  Otherwise olives and a few Heptagenia.  There have been ants out there in some form almost every day.


What’s Hatching:
Olive Sulphur – #18 – 20 – Heptagenia hebe
Light Cahill – #14 – Stenocron spp. , E. invaria
Slate Drake – #12-2xl – 12 – Isonychia bicolor
