Delaware River Report / Conditions October 26, 2014

Oct 26, 2014 Comments Off by

We were hit by a strong thunderstorm overnight but so far the West Branch remains clear and has only risen around 20 cfs at Hale Eddy.  While it’s still rising slowly this morning it should level off soon.  The flows throughout the system have all risen slightly but it seems like a minor event overall that should not change the fishing conditions today.  We should be in the low 50’s today and if the wind stays down we should see some pseudos hatching in the afternoon.  Nymphing has been productive when the wind blows.  Most success has come on Pheasant Tail and Copper John nymphs that match the small olives in #18 -22.  Cannonsville is at 49% capacity with an inflow on the Upper West Branch of 373 cfs.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 51 degrees this morning.

 

Hatching:

Olive/Sulphurs #18 -20 H. hebe

Tiny Blue Wing Olives #22 – 26 – Pseudocloeon sp.

Dark Blue Winged Olive #16 -20 – E. deficiens, lata, etc.

Slate Drakes #14 -Isonychia bicolor
