Delaware River Report / Conditions October 25, 2017

We had some rain in the morning but by afternoon we had sunshine, periods of no wind, and warm air temperatures.    We were able to fish until dark without having any high water issues.  Honestly it was kind of weird after listening to the doom and gloom weather reports.  The Beaverkill / East Branch has come up quite a bit from a relative standpoint but they are both at fishable levels this morning.  The release from Cannonsville is now 659 cfs leaving Hale Eddy with a flow of just over 700 cfs.  Wunderground shows us much cooler than yesterday but 60 degrees is 60 degrees in late October.  Winds should be light staying under 10 mph.  We did see some isonychia spinners last night but there were more tiny olive spinners in the air than anything else.  Some caddis showed up towards dark but the olives were what the fish wanted.
