Delaware River Report: September 29, 2022

We had a brief afternoon rain storm but it wasn’t enough to affect the flows. There were decent olives mixed with a few Isonychias and Heptagenias yesterday making it a good day to be on the water. We’ll have more sunshine today with the air temp only hitting 57 degrees. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the North. So the bugs will hatch in the afternoon again but try to find a place with a little wind protection. Wunderground shows the wind dropping in the afternoon so that should help.
