Delaware River Report / Conditions September 4, 2020

Sep 04, 2020 Comments Off by

Yesterday was a good mix of clouds and sunshine.  We didn’t get any more rain on the lower West which felt weird after pretty much 5 days of storms.  Today we’ll see more sunshine and a few clouds.  75 degrees with little wind.  The night time temps are dropping back into the 50’s for the weekend so we should see the water temps improve on some rivers. Olives and some isonychias have been out.  Some people are seeing the heptagenias in small  numbers too.  And always have your flying ants ready this time of year.

The PA Fish and Boat Commissions Conservation Acquisition Partnership Program came up on a fishing forum yesterday and it sounds like a great idea that could use some promotion. It was created by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission to solicit and accept donations to be used solely to obtain additional access to Pennsylvania’s water.

While you can’t earmark donations specifically for the Upper Delaware every bit of help the Commission gets benefits us.
