Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/16/10

Weather forecasts for today are calling for more scattered thunderstorms and a high of 83 degrees.  Today’s conditions should make for a good day on the river. Yesterday seen action on small Olives, Isos, and Cahills with a scattering of Sulphurs.  Streamers also worked well and today, we would expect more of the same.  With all the rain, mixed with cold water temps, the river became quite foggy later in the evening.
