July 25th, 1:00 A.M. - Area Overview

Cooler with rain. 58 degrees with a forecast high of 66 degrees. A brief shower or two.

A couple nights of rain and cool weather have dropped temperatures pretty substantially throughout the system.

Streamer conditions until the water clears back up.
We are into the Summer conditions, that means most of the dry fly activity is in the early morning or the last hour just before dark in most places in the system. The exceptions are the West and East Branches of the Delaware. On these rivers, we see early afternoon hatches in the first few miles below the dams due to the cold water.
