Delaware River Report / Conditions September 6, 2017

We’ve had rain off and on since dark last night.  There are puddles in the yard and you can see some of the feeders flowing higher but so far the river gauges haven’t budged and everything looks good here in Hancock.  The forecast is only calling for 1/4″ of rain today.  Winds will be light and the air temperature will be lower with the high reaching 60 degrees.  This looks like a good day to throw streamers and then look for heads later in the afternoon.  Yesterday was a great flying ant day and they finally hit the water where were fishing.  There were all sizes and colors mixed in so there was no particular ant pattern that stood out.  We went bigger just because there were so many we thought our fly would get lost in the mix.
