Delaware River Report / Conditions September 9, 2019

The release from Cannonsville has been bumped up slightly again to 913 cfs.   This is likely due to water needed to meet the Montague flow target.  Wading is possible on some West Branch river sections and is fine on the Mainstem.  Today’s weather looks like a repeat of yesterday with sunshine and a high of 72 degrees.  Wind will be a non factor.  Nymphing and wet flies will probably be your best bet until the afternoon olive hatches.  Blind casting isonychias in the riffles may also be a good choice.  The morning tricos are still around but fish rising to them seems to still be spotty.  We’re still patiently waiting for a big flying ant fall but there are some around.
