Delaware River Report / Conditions September 21, 2021

We had quite a bit of sun yesterday but there were some olives in the afternoon that offered some dry fly fishing.  Fish were also landed on streamers and nymphs.  We should have more clouds today that should help the fishing start a little earlier.  The rivers are still high and the best wading is still on the Beaverkill / Willowemoc Rivers.  the West Branch at Stilesville is still 1,400 cfs.  There is that Fall tint to the river that we seem to get every year but it hasn’t stopped the fish from rising.
