Delaware River Report / Conditions September 18, 2013

The bugs were out in force yesterday, especially as the day wore on into evening. Plenty of smaller stenos on the main, olives on the West, with some brown caddis (#16) popping out, but the fish did not seem to key in on them. We had a very cold overnight, which brought our river temps right back down, and today we expecting another mostly sunny day, but a bit warmer – in the low 70s. If the sun does stay out and bright, there is a good chance for flying ants this afternoon as well – there were a handful reported on the lower West yesterday, so there is always hope! Otherwise, the tricos should come when the morning sun burns through the fog, and get things rolling for the day.
