Delaware River Report / Conditions September 3, 2014

Despite the constant alterations made to the Cannsonsville release, the river still fished!  Sulphurs and olives were found early to mid afternoon in Deposit.  On the lower river, the action didn’t happen until around 6pm with a few olives of various sizes.  Since the fish have been sporadic the past few days, one good tactic is to move slowly up and down a pool until you find a group of fish.  Stay on them! While they may only rise once every couple minutes, a well placed fly immediately after they feed will be sure to fool them.

We received some heavy rain late yesterday evening but it wasn’t enough to change the river.  Today is supposed to be partly sunny and less humid.  The lack of humidity should keep the fog off the river.  The current flow from the Cannonsville dam is  600 cfs, let’s hope it doesn’t change too much today.

 

Although it's quite uncommon, these little guys find their way into the river from time to time!
