Delaware River Report / Conditions September 19, 2014

Sep 19, 2014 Comments Off by

The mayflies started mid afternoon yesterday on some sections of the river with a mix of olives, Cahills, and just a few Isonychias.  The olives ranged in size from #16 – 26 but luckily the fish were interested in the larger sizes.  The weather held nicely for most of the day but fishing definitely dropped off towards dark when the air temperature dropped.  Today looks pleasant and cool with this being the last chilly day before another warm front moves in on Saturday.  The release from Cannonsville is 866 cfs until further notice.  The West Branch water temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 51 degrees this morning.
