Delaware River Report / Conditions October 13, 2014

Oct 13, 2014 Comments Off by

It seems that the reports differed greatly depending on who and where they were fishing over the weekend.  All in all it sounded pretty decent for mid October with wind.  Accuweather is calling for some rain over the next few days which should help the Olive hatches and hopefully kick start some more fall Isonychias.  If nothing else the cloud cover will be a releif for those who fished in the sunshine the last few days.  Streamer fishing still seems best before the sun hits the water although the color in the West Branch certainly helps the mid day guys.  The release from Cannonsville Reservoir is 1,167 cfs until further notice.  The West Branch temperature under the 191 Bride in Hancock is 55 degrees.  As of October 10th Cannonsville is at 51.1% capacity and Pepacton is at 71.5% capacity.
