Delaware River Report / Conditions October 26, 2018

We’re starting off a little cold this morning but we should warm up to 45 degrees by mid afternoon.  We’ll have sun for most of the day with light winds.  A front will move in overnight bringing 1/4″ of rain.  That shouldn’t happen until after dark.  We’re in for more rain tomorrow but the amount in the forecast has been changing.  The West Branch is still coming out of Cannonsville at 1,500 cfs and off color.  It’s probably the best place to throw streamers.  The lower East Branch and Mainstem will be clearer and look better for small olives and caddis fishing.  Keep an eye on the long, slow tailouts for your best shot.  If you’re wading concentrate on the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.


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

Isonychia –  #14 – Isonychia bicolor
