Delaware River Report / Conditions October 14, 2020

The flow at Stilesville is back up to 860 cfs this morning after being dropped a bit yesterday.  The air temp will hit 64 degrees today with sunshine but we are starting off 38 degrees and foggy this morning.  Wind should not be a factor at 5 – 9 mph from the West.  The West Branch flow is up so if you’re looking for dry fly fishing keep and eye on the slower tailouts of the big pools.  Otherwise streamers and nymphs should work well.  The East Branch is low with a 228 cfs flow at Fishs Eddy so the Mainstem is also relatively low.  Both of those would be good options for wading.  Small olives, some isonychias, and caddis are out there.  Some river sections may still have a few heptagenias hatching so keep those in your box for now.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The higher the release the more color will be in the river.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
