Delaware River Report / Conditions October 21, 2013

Oct 21, 2013 Comments Off by

Shockingly, yesterday actually turned out  as predicted! When there was wind, the bugs were down, but fish were active subsurface. When the wind died, we had fish working on the top. Overall, not a bad day to be on the river! Today, we have another cooler morning, with a fall-ish afternoon predicted – sun and clouds around 62 degrees. The fish will likely be asleep this morning, but will certainly turn on once the water starts to warm up. I am hoping for more dry fly action when that occurs, but I won’t be putting the boat in today – with flows at 875 at Lordville, that will only mean scratches I don’t need. Let’s hope for some rain to push things up a little bit.
