Delaware River Report / Conditions May 23, 2020

May 23, 2020 No Comments by

Yesterday we saw mid day fish slashing caddis and olives in the broken water despite the sunshine poling through the clouds.  A few hendrickson and march browns are out there plus the hendrickson spinners.  Nymphing worked well throughout the day. The flows didn’t bump much from the rain.  The West Branch above the reservoir is the only river that came up so everything is starting off about he same as yesterday. We may see a few more showers this morning with another 1/4″.  The vegetation soaks up a lot of the rain this time of year so the effect on the rivers should be minimal.  The rivers are still high enough to float but low enough that wading is now a option just about anywhere.

Our lodging and fly shop are now open.  Our fly shop will be limited to two customers at a time and masks are required.  We will wipe down the shop before the next customers come inside.  We are following CDC cleaning guidelines for both the rooms and the shop.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:  https://drc-fly-shop.myshopify.com 

Curbside pickup is still a shipping option in the online store if you would rather not come inside.

We are now allowed to guide one client at a time in Pennsylvania, two anglers in NYS. If you would like a guided trip send us an email at flyfish@thedelawareriverclub.com or call 570-635-5880 and we’ll try to fit you in.

There were a lot of fish slashing a mix of caddis, spinners, and olives yesterday mid afternoon.  It didn’t happen system wide but the people who were lucky enough to find them had a good day.  Otherwise there were targets but the fish are getting a bit picky with the lower water and bright sunshine.  It was a beautiful day to be on the water.  Today sounds like a better fishing day with clouds coming and a chance of a shower in the afternoon.  Wind will be light and variable.  Light and variable sounds way better than the wind we’ve been dealing with all Spring.  We may see 1/4″ of rain today and maybe another 1/4″ tomorrow but that will soak right into the ground.  The release from Cannonsville is around 500 cfs.

Yesterday sounded like a caddis day.  There were some mayflies out there but we’re hearing most of the fish were landed on caddis.  Better cloud cover certainly would have helped the mayflies but overall it sounded like a decent day.  It was certainly a beautiful day on the water.  Today will be even nicer with a high of 73 degrees and wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.  It will be sunny again.  There will be a few clouds coming in tomorrow.  The release from Cannonsville has been dropped and the flow at Stilesville is 661 cfs this morning.

Our lodging is now open.  Our fly shop will open to walk in business Friday morning at 8 am.  It will be limited to two customers at a time and masks are required.  We will wipe down the shop before the next customers come inside.  We are following CDC cleaning guidelines for both the rooms and the shop.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:  https://drc-fly-shop.myshopify.com

Yesterday we saw a lot of caddis, a few hendricksons, and a few hendrickson spinners.  Other river sections are seeing caddis and the start of the march browns.  The wind was not helpful at times but the fish were up and would eat.  Overall it was a nice day on the river with decent fishing. Hard to complain about that. Today looks like a similar weather day with a little more sunshine.  The air temp will hit 68 degrees with wind 10 – 15 from the East.  The release from Cannonsville has been dropped slightly to 872 cfs.

Our lodging is now open.  Our fly shop will open to walk in business Friday morning at 8 am.  It will be limited to two customers at a time and masks are required.  We will wipe down the shop before the next customers come inside.  We are following CDC cleaning guidelines for both the rooms and the shop.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:  https://drc-fly-shop.myshopify.com

Today is going to be another beautiful day on the water.  The air temp will hit the high 60’s with some clouds rolling in during the afternoon.  Wind will be from the East 5 – 10 mph.  Yesterday was good.  We’re still seeing a mix of hendricksons and blue quills and lots of caddis.  The spinner fishing is picking up so definitely have # 14 and #16 rusty spinners handy.  Some march browns are showing up here and there so the hatches seem a bit jumbled but are progressing well.  The river flows are dropping slowly as the runoff subsides.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,112 cfs.

Yesterday turned out to be a pleasant one on the water.  There was some wind but no where near as much as we’ve been dealing with most of the Spring.  Today looks similar to yesterday with the air temp in the high 60’s, cloud cover, and wind 5 – 10 mph from the East.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and caddis will make up most of the menu.  Definitely carry your spinner patterns.  There are some march browns hatching on some sections so add those to your box.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,499 cfs.

The river flows have dropped since yesterday morning but are still running a bit high.  By mid afternoon yesterday the clarity had really improved and there were fish eating on top in places.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and caddis were on the water.  We also saw some hendrickson and blue quill spinners in the evening.  The air temp will hit 68 degrees today with south wind 5 – 10 mph.  We should see some clouds move in with a slight chance of rain.  Rain accumulation should be negligible.  It looks like we have a nice week coming up.  The best wade opportunities are over on the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.  The flows on the East and West should continue to drop slowly as the runoff in the feeder creeks subside.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,499 cfs.

We had some pretty good rain last night so all of the river flows are up this morning.  The flow at Hale Eddy peaked a little over 3,000 cfs and is already beginning to drop.  The West Branch is off color.  Hopefully it clears as it drops today.  We shouldn’t see any more precipitation until Monday.  If you want to wade look towards the headwaters of the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.  Those upper stretches will drop first.

Both Cannonsville and Pepacton have stopped spilling.  The water levels are starting off this morning pretty close to yesterday’s numbers.  The Beaverkill is up slightly form the rain last night.   Yesterday was a tough day despite the great looking conditions.  Bugs still hatched and people landed fish so overall it was decent.  It seemed to take a while to get going.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and caddis are still making up most of the food out there.  Today is going to be warmer with a chance of some showers.  The cloud cover and light wind should help the fishing.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,083 cfs.

It seems like a funny complaint but yesterday afternoon was a bit too sunny.  Things picked up in the late afternoon and we saw good apple caddis, blue quills, and hendricksons.  Today looks much better.  We’re starting off with some frost on the ground but we should see 68 degrees today.  Wind will be light at 5 – 10 mph from the South.  Wunderground has the clouds moving in around lunchtime but no rain until just about dark.  We’ll see around 1/4″ fall overnight.

There were a lot of bugs hatching yesterday getting pushed around by the wind.  People still found rising fish and some nice ones were landed.  Blue quills, hendricksons, and olives were the mixed menu.  Some sections had a great mix of light and dark brachycentrus caddis too.  We’ll have more sunshine today with the air temp reaching 51 degrees.  That will feel a lot warmer than yesterday.  Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the North.  That seems like a lot but it’s a lot less than what we’ve been dealing with for most of the Spring.  Pepacton has stopped spilling so there are a lot of wade opportunities in the Eastern drainage.  The West Branch is still spilling a little but there are spots to wade at 1,300 cfs.  The West and Mainstem are at good floating levels too.
