Delaware River Report / Conditions September 3, 2017

We’ve has sporadic rain since last evening.  The river flows have bumped a small bit this morning but everything looks clear and fine down here.  A lot of the precipitation must have soaked into the ground.  The cloud cover and rain certainly helped the fishing.  There were a lot of olives, cahills, and heptagenia on the water last evening and the fish were up and happy. Some river sections are even seeing decent numbers of isonychias and isonychia spinners.  The good fishing should continue today as we keep the cloud cover and light intermittent rain. Winds will be low staying under 10 mph.
