Delaware River Report / Conditions September 7, 2018

Sep 07, 2018 Comments Off by

The early rain missed us yesterday.  The thunder sounded like it went just North.  We did start getting some rain late in the afternoon and another brief storm overnight.  The West Branch flow bumped slightly at Hale Eddy but is already back to normal.  The Beaverkill and East Branch flows also bumped slightly but should drop back today.  The forecast has been changing a lot over the last couple of days.  Today we should see cloud cover, an air temp peaking around 73 degrees, and wind around 5 mph from the North.  When the storms moved in yesterday the air temp dropped quickly and seemed to shut the bugs down.  It was still possible to drum some fish up on Isonychias and nymphs  / wets.  The olives should pick back up as this cooler weather trend settles in.

The tailwaters are in good shape but the Beaverkill peaked over 70 degrees at Cooks Falls yesterday.  It is starting off at 68 degrees this morning.  Skip that river and fish cold water.
