Delaware River Report / Conditions September 4, 2017

Sep 04, 2017 Comments Off by

After a day of nice steady rain the rivers held their own and everything looks good this morning.  The flows bumped up a bit but not too bad.  The water is dropping back and everything look fishable here in Hancock. There were decent olives on some sections yesterday afternoon.  A lot of the fish were eating the emergers just under the surface so timing and patience played a huge role.  We saw a few cahills and isonychias but really it was all about the olives.  Today is going to be much warmer with the air temperatures approaching the high 70’s.  The clouds will give way to sun in the afternoon wind winds around 10 mph.  With the warmer air temperatures and wet ground this has the potential to be a decent flying ant day.
