Delaware River Report / Conditions October 27, 2018

Oct 27, 2018 No Comments by

We have some light rain coming down this morning but that should pick up as the day goes on.  We should see around .75″ today with a little less than .25″ coming overnight.  Some of the higher elevations may see a bit of snow or ice but we should be fine along the river with the air temp staying in the high 30’s.  The rain will likely bring the river flows up below the feeder streams so keep that in mind if you are out there.  Streamers will likely be your best bet today.  Vary the retrieve and pattern until you start hitting fish.    The West Branch is still coming out of Cannonsville off color.  The other rivers are starting clear but may color up from the rain by mid afternoon.  Bring some olives and caddis patterns just in case but concentrate on the streamers.

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
