Delaware River Report / Conditions September 21, 2014

Sep 21, 2014 Comments Off by

Yesterday the clouds hung around longer than expected.  Although the wind gusts were an issue at time the olives, Isonychias, and Cahills came and the fish responded.  Primetime now appears to be 2:20 – 6 pm for dry fly activity but that may start earlier today with the predicted warmer air temperatures and light scattered storms moving through the area.  Nymphing and streamers are still producing well when the sun is not hitting the water directly.  The bite drops off on bright days once the morning fog burns off.  The release from Cannonsville Reservoir is 1297 cfs until further notice.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 52 degrees this morning.
