Delaware River Report / Conditions September 11, 2021

Sep 11, 2021 No Comments by

The daytime wind made yesterday tough.  Early it was definitely a nymphing / wet fly kind of day.  A few people were throwing streamers.  The wind dropped around 6 and there was a decent hatch of olives offering some shots at dry fly fish.  The hatch ended a bit earlier than usual as the air temp dropped towards dark.  The wind will be kinder today at 5 – 10 mph from the South.  74 degrees with mostly sunshine.  The release from Cannonsville has been increased and the flow at Stilesville is just under 1,000 cfs as of the 4:15 am update.  Check the gauge links below for the latest flows.
