Delaware River Report / Conditions October 15, 2014

Everything looked great yesterday except for the wind!  There were decent Psuedos hatching mixed with a few Isonychias.  We did find fish rising in wind protected areas during the day and once the wind dropped in the late afternoon the activity definitely increased. Today is going to be in the low 70’s with some light rain and fair wind.  The key will be finding the edges that are wind protected and watching for the subtle rise forms when the fish are sipping olives.  The release from Cannonsville has bee dropped to 868 cfs this morning which should help some of the color settle out as it moves down river.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 57 degrees this morning.
