Delaware River Report / Conditions September 9, 2018

Everything seemed to come together yesterday and the fish were happy.  Most people were talking about the decent Isonychia hatches but there were olives mixed in too.  The fish were friendly and eating off the top.  Cloud cover, cool water temps, and no wind.  The rain stayed just south of us all day and we skated through dry.  It sounded like the best day on the river in a while.  We’re going to start off with a little sun this morning but the clouds should roll in by lunch time.  The  wind should be 5 – 10 mph from the South.  Wunderground is showing the rain starting well after dark tonight.  It looks like another great day to be on the water.  Tomorrow looks wet with over 1″ of rain in the forecast.  Hopefully the most of the storms skirt around us again.
