Delaware River Report / Conditions October 19, 2013

Interesting day on the river Friday. Even with the flow drop, the fish were active in the morning, and we were seeing bugs early, until the wind picked up around lunch time. There were some seriously stiff breezes which made casting fun, but the bugs reappeared in evening (Isos and Pseudos), and the fish were definitely up and on them. Today we are already starting cloudy, and there are rain showers predicted for later in the day and into the evening. The actual amount of precipitation does not look like much, but with calm winds and overcast skies, we could see some excellent hatching activity!
