Delaware River Report / Conditions September 4, 2012

The side of the shop was olive central this morning! Pseudos, Baetis, deficiens – they all showed up to the party it seems, the only issue being they likely hatched after dark, given the reports I received about yesterday’s fishing. There was some great trico action early, with sporadic hatching during the cloudy day, but the fish never truly turned on as they should have, given the conditions. Today, the cloud cover continues, and there are scattered thunderstorms rolling around the area, so that will make the day interesting for all those out on the water. Let’s hope the olives keep it up, and the fish actually decide to LOOK UP a little bit more!
