Delaware River Report / Conditions September 6, 2020

Sep 06, 2020 Comments Off by

A little light rain is coming down this morning.  Very light- just enough to keep the dust down so the rivers are looking good.  We’ll see a mix of clouds and sun with the air temp hitting 74 degrees.  Wind will be 4 – 6 mph.  Sounds like a good day to be on the water.  Yesterday was nymphing early but people found fish eating olives in the evening.  The cooler nights and cloud cover should help.  Hopefully the flying ants make a reappearance over the next few days as the weather warms up.There are still some left over tricos around and we are finding a few more heptagenias each day.  Those should pick up along with the smaller isos as we move into fall.

We’re going to leave this up for a bit because it’s important.

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.
