Delaware River Report / Conditions May 28, 2020

May 28, 2020 Comments Off by

Today will be cooler with the air temp hitting 73 degrees.  Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the South with the possibility of some showers in the evening.  It’s going to feel good out there after the last few days of heat.  The release from Cannonsville is 450 cfs.  March browns and gray fox are around but we haven’t seen a real concentrated hatch yet.  Either would make a good searching pattern in the riffles right now, especially on the upper main.  Tan caddis around and the fish are on them.  Sulphurs are coming off right at dark like normal for this time of year.  We may see some olives coming off in the rain today and tomorrow so definitely have those handy.

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.

The release from Cannonsville has been reduced to 488 cfs.  The air temp will be in the 80’s again today but at least we should have some cloud cover.  Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South.  Luckily we’ll cool down to the 70’s tomorrow.  The hendricksons are still holding on in the colder river sections.  Not a lot of them but if you go up top have a few in your box.  Otherwise caddis and olives will cover most of what you’ll see during the day.  There are some sporadic march browns and gray fox hatching plus sulphurs towards dark.  Overall we did well yesterday despite the blazing sun and hot air temp.

If you fish the lower Main or lower East check the water temps first.  Both rivers hit the high 60’s with yesterday’s heat.

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

Yesterday’s Wunderground forecast forgot to mention an brief but heavy mid morning rainstorm.  They got the rest of the day correct with sunshine and temps approaching 80.  Today looks similar with the air temp hitting the mid 80’s, sunshine, and wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.  Nymphing has been the best bet during the day but keep an eye out for caddis being eaten in the riffles.  We’ve stumbled on that a couple of times this week.  The weather should warm the water and push some of the hatches that are on the brink like the march browns and gray fox.  Sulphurs are showing up at dark on some river sections.  Have your sulphurs ready towards dark.

The release from Cannonsville has been increased slightly to 651 cfs.  650 cfs just wasn’t quite enough so we got the extra 1.  That happened yesterday afternoon.  We’re in for another bluebird day.  It actually sounds  like a repeat of yesterday. Clouds in the morning and clear in the afternoon.  The air temp will hit the high 70’s and wind will be 5 – 10 from the South.  Some good cloud cover and light rain would really be nice right now.  These sunny bright days have been tough but there have been a lot of caddis active over the riffles so watch them closely for a flash or slash.  If you are on the Mainstem or East Branch try blind casting a march brown.  There were also some sulphurs hatching last night so definitely have those in your box.  There are some bigger hendricksons hanging on in some sections and we are seeing a few of the #16 hendricksons so don’t put those flies away quite yet.

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

Yesterday morning’s rain caused a small bump in flows throughout the system but it wasn’t much and the rivers are already dropping back to normal.  Everything is still at a good level for wading and floating.  We’ll have more sunshine today with the air temp reaching 74 degrees and with 5 – 10 mph from the South.  There’s a mix of bugs out there so carry most of your Spring flies.  The march brown hatch should get better as the water warms up.  Caddis are everywhere and the olive hatches have been decent this past week. We’re still seeing some subvaria hendricksons and the start of the X hendricksons.  Definitely have your spinner box handy.

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.

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.

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.

We are following the State’s order and the shop is still closed to walk in business.  It sounds like we will be able to let in a limited number of customers at a time beginning Friday May 22nd. We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:  https://drc-fly-shop.myshopify.com

Curbside pickup is now a shipping option in the online store.
