Delaware River Report / Conditions September 7, 2017

Sep 07, 2017 Comments Off by

The rivers came up a bit yesterday due to the all day light rain.  The West is already dropping back and if fine to wade.  The color looks good this morning and water temperatures are in great shape.  The combination of cloud cover, rain, and cooler air temps have been great for the system.  The cooler temps did put a bit of a damper on the flying ants but there were isonychias, cahill / stenos, and heptagenia hatching in the afternoon.  And of course the olives were there.  It’s going to be warmer today with a few afternoon showers.  The amount of precipitation in the forecast looks negligible and it should clear out before dark.
