Delaware River Report / Conditions September 30, 2017

We had a little rain overnight but the river flows have not budged.  Everything is starting off about the same as yesterday.  There is a chance of additional rain during the day today but the amount forecasted is negligible and will soak right into the ground.  We should have some decent cloud cover for most of the day.  It definitely feels like a fall blue winged olive day.  If the winds pick up look for fish in protected edges of the larger pools.  Aside from the decent streamer fishing there have been fish eating dries on the West Branch- especially in the evening.  Streamers are still bringing some nice fish to the net and a lot of the browns are stating to darken up.  Mix it up and be patient.  A lot of nice fish have been landed since the hot weather ended and things have cooled down.
