Delaware River Report / Conditions October 10, 2020

Oct 10, 2020 No Comments by

Yesterday was a decent day to be on the water since we had little wind for a change.  Olives, caddis, a few isonychias, and some heptagenia are making up most of the bugs.  We are seeing quite a few isonychia spinners in the air so have some #14 rusty spinners in your box.  The West Branch flow is 722 cfs at Stilesville this morning.  The turbidity increases along with the release so there is some color to the water. It doesn’t seem to bother the fish or the bugs.  Today will be warmer with the air temp hitting the high 70’s with some sunshine.  The wind won’t be awesome at 15 mph from the South.  Overall it’s been a windy week.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The cloudiness will increase if they raise the release.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
