Delaware River Report / Conditions November 1, 2017

Nov 01, 2017 Comments Off by

The rivers are dropping and are looking better.   The West Branch is back to normal levels already.  Today is going to be cooler with a light shower in the afternoon.  No real accumulation is expected so the rivers should keep dropping.  We’ll look around for the isonychia spinners but we should have olives until it gets real cold.  Tomorrow we should see air temperatures in the 60’s.  This has been a crazy, crazy weather year.  Winds look fine over the next few days.  If the olives don’t show nymphing the riffles should work well. Water temperatures are decent and the fish are  active.
