Delaware River Report / Conditions September 2, 2017

The release from Cannonsville has been dropped to 401 ish cfs.  The recording hasn’t been updated but we’ll go with that number.  Water temperatures are not a problem after the last few nights and the rivers are okay for floating or wading at these levels.  The wind was unkind for a good part of yesterday but did finally drop in the evening.  Once it dropped the dry fly fishing picked up with olives, cahills, and Heptagenia coming off.  We have been fishing olives from size 18 down to 26 so bring the whole box.  Some fish aren’t picky while others get stuck on the tiny ones.  We should have a few clouds around today with light winds.  There’s a possibility of an afternoon / evening shower but that looks unlikely to happen.
