Delaware River Report / Conditions May 17, 2019

May 17, 2019 Comments Off by

Yesterday was a good day to be on the river.  Sunny and warm.  The caddis were out and there were some hendricksons and blue quills hatching in the afternoon.  The bright sun kept some of the risers sporadic but it picked up as the sun dropped behind the hills.  We are seeing some hendrickson spinners hitting the water in the evening.  The apple caddis showed up in good numbers on some river sections offering some opportunities earlier in the day.  Nymphing and swinging wets has also payed off.  The wind played havoc with the hatches at times but overall the fish were happy.  Today looks even better with a few more clouds, a light shower, and winds 5 – 10 from the West.

We’re still seeing hendricksons, blue quills, and a handful of march browns.  There are a few species of caddis out there too so definitely have your caddis box handy.   The sun actually came out yesterday and fish were landed on dry flies and nymphs.  We did get some afternoon rain that came through quick but not enough fell to really affect the flows.  Cannonsville and Pepacton Reservoirs are both spilling again.  Wading is tough on the main rivers but people are finding a few spots to get out far enough to catch some fish.  Just use your judgement and be careful.  The Beaverkill is dropping so you should definitely be able to find wadeable water in the upper stretches of that system.  Today looks beautiful with air temps hitting the mid 60’s, afternoon sunshine, and winds under 10 mph.

There were bugs hatching and fish eating on top yesterday.  We mostly saw hendricksons and blue quills with a few caddis mixed in.  There were periods of light rain and it was cool but we never had any heavy precip fall yesterday.  Plus there was no wind.  The river flows are pretty much where we started of yesterday so fishing from a boat is definitely the way to go.  The Beaverkill flow is dropping quickly and will offer some wade opportunities first.  It’s still running high today though so if you want to wade explore the headwaters and small feeder streams.  The air temps should get back to normal today with a high of 60 degrees.  We may actually see the sun today in the late afternoon.  Wind from the north around 10 mph.  We still have some color in the water but it’s definitely better than yesterday and is fishable.

 

The Beaverkill flows are dropping quick- hopefully the rain is done

We had quite a bit of rain fall yesterday.  It was one of the steady all day rains so it really took a while to notice the river flows changing.  All of the river flows are up this morning and wading is not an option today.  It is safe to float.  The West Branch is off color and it definitively looks like a streamer day.  It’s not chocolate milk but it definitely has color.  Right now Cannonsville Reservoir is not spilling so most of the water is coming from the feeder streams.  If we don’t see much additional rain we should be in better dry fly shape tomorrow as the runoff subsides.  Today also looks like the last day of cooler weather and we see air temps climb back into the 60’s beginning tomorrow.  There’s no significant rain in the forecast through the weekend.

A few fish were landed yesterday on nymphs and streamers but the dry fly fishing didn’t really happen.  The temperature drop brought by the front moving through was pretty significant.  The rain was steady all day but not really heavy. It was enough to bump the river flows but most of the system has already peaked and is dropping back this morning.  Wading is going to be tough today.  The head waters of the Beaverkill system would be the best bet.  If you’re wading give the rivers a day or two to drop and keep an eye on the flows.  The West Branch is clear enough to fish this morning but would be best fished from a boat.  The air temp will be cooler again today staying in the 40’s before climbing back to the 60’s mid week.  There is some rain in the forecast today but the amount predicted seems to change every time we look.  Most of it should fall after lunch so if you’re heading out definitely bring a raincoat.  We may see another 1/2 spread out over the afternoon much like yesterday.

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty decent day with bugs, fish, and good weather.  People saw good flushes of hendricksons and blue quills followed by some a few spinners in the evening.  Different river sections saw different action but it seemed like everyone we spoke to found something.  We had a shower or two overnight but there hasn’t been enough to change the river flows.  The lower water has made wading an option – especially on the Beaverkill.  There are people wading all of the rivers in spots.  It depends on your comfort level.  The weather reports have been changing every time we look but right now it looks like we’ll have a steady rain for most of the day with over 1/2″ falling.  If it really comes over the course of 8 – 10 hours that’s not so bad.  If the flows change dramatically we’ll update this post.  Wind will be out of the East 8 – 10 mph with the air temp staying in the 40’s.

Overall yesterday turned out to be a nice day.  We had a mix of sun and clouds with light wind and it definitely hit 70 degrees.  There was a heavy but brief rainstorm in the afternoon but things went right back to normal after it passed through.  Caddis, olives, hendricksons, and blue quill spinners were around.  We’re also starting to see some March Browns on some river sections.  Today’s forecast looks nice with a partly cloudy sky, wind 5 – 10 mph out of the North, and an air temp around 60 degrees.  It’s breezy and cool this morning but if Wunderground is correct it should calm down a bit over the next few hours.  The flows bumped up slightly from the rain but not enough to be noticeable on most rivers.  Cannonsville and Pepacton Reservoirs have both stopped spilling and the freestone stream flows should keep dropping slowly as the runoff subsides

The wind made yesterday a really tough one on the water. Some of those gusts had to be over 25 mph.  At least the rain held off during the day.  On a good note the flows are still dropping throughout the system despite the overnight rain.  Everything looks good this morning.  Today’s rain forecast has been reduced considerably and we should only see 1/4″ of rain spread out over 7 hours.  The air temp will hit the low 70’s .  It looks like a good day to be on the water.  Hendricksons, caddis, blue quill spinners, and olives.

The wind held off for the most part yesterday so the fishing was back to normal and definitely better than Tuesday.  Hendricksons and a good mix of caddis are making up the menu.  There are some spinners out there (blue quill and hendricksons) plus the normal blue winged olives.  If you’re heading down the Main far enough have a few gray fox and march browns on you just in case.  We’re going to start off with sunshine this morning that should give way to clouds in the afternoon.  It looks like the rain will hold off until after dark.  We should see less than 1/4″ overnight.  The air temp will be close to 60 degrees with wind from the South picking up as the front moves in.  Not a bad looking day to be on the water.

Fishing started off good yesterday with caddis and hendricksons hatching.  The wind picked up in the afternoon making it difficult for the fish to eat on top and difficult for us to make the cast when we found them.  people that stayed out of the wind or found breaks seemed to do well.  Overall the morning reports were good but mixed in the afternoon.  The main rivers are still high for wading but people are hitting them in spots.  The Beaverkill / Willowemoc are better bets for wading right now.  The tailwaters are dropping slowly.  The rain forecast has been pushed back a day so hopefully that trend continues and it misses us completely.  Wunderground shows today as sunny with a high of 62 degrees.  Wind should be 8 – 10 mph from the North.  If they’re right that’s way less wind than yesterday afternoon.

Yesterday was another good one to be on the water.  The bugs were there and the fish were up.  We had a little more sun that we wanted in the afternoon but it felt good to fish in a t shirt.  The fish are getting a little more picky with all the traffic out there so presentation is becoming even more important.  Hendricksons, blue quill, and some apple caddis.  Definitely carry spinner patterns with you now.The flows are dropping back slowly.  The Beaverkill dropped below 1,000 cfs offering some wade opportunities.  Today looks nice at 71 degrees with some cloud cover.  Winds will be 10 -15 from the South.

Yesterday fished well.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and apple caddis (the caddis are on some sections of river- not others).  The clouds stuck around all day and even when the sky looked really threatening the rain held off and the wind stayed low.  Some of the fish are getting picky so presentation is playing a bigger role each day.  We are finding some spinners so keep an eye out for spinner falls even during the hatch.  Today’s forecast looks great.  Winds light and variable, sunshine, and an air temp near 70 degrees.  We’d like to see a few more clouds stick around but it’s going to be a beautiful day out there.  We had just enough rain fall that the river flows are pretty much the same as yesterday morning.
