Delaware River Report / Conditions October 25, 2018

We have cloud cover and a little wind this morning.  Looking at the hourly forecast the wind should stay 10 mph or below out of the North.  We’ll be a little cooler today with the air temp peaking around 40 degrees.  The West Branch is still coming out of Cannonsville at 1,500 cfs and off color.  It looks like the best bet for streamer fishing.  We are seeing olives and caddis out there.  The East Branch and Mainstem are your best bets for dry fly fishing or nymphing.  It looks like the weather warms up again over the weekend.  We do have some rain in the forecast but the amount predicted seems to be changing daily.

The Upper West Branch from Cannonsville Dam to Monument is closed.  The East Branch from Pepacton Dam to Shinopple Bridge is also closed.

Isonychia –  #14 – Isonychia bicolor
