Delaware River Report / Conditions September 7, 2020

Today will be sunny again with a few clouds.  We’ll be close to 80 degrees with 7 mph wind from the South. Nymphing and wet flies will be your best bet during the day.  Since we’ll have the sunshine and warm air hopefully we get some humidity to push the flying ants.  There was some dry fly action in some spots last evening.  Small olives, isonychias, and heptagenia are showing up.  White flies are out on some river sections offering some brief but decent opportunities towards dark.

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.
