Delaware River Report / Conditions October 28, 2013

Oct 28, 2013 Comments Off by

Sunday was definitely a much calmer, sunnier day overall, and the fish did respond in the mid-day hours to flushes of Isos and Pseudos taking advantage of the warmest part of the day. The West fished a bit more than the Main, and the fish were super-spooky over on the East and Beaverkill, which is no surprised based on the low flows that direction. We still have higher water on the West thanks to directed flows keeping Montague as high as it needs to be, which makes it perfect for both wading and floating. We’ve got similar days for the rest of the week, so hopefully the pattern will continue, giving everyone a chance to sleep in if they choose, without missing the majority of the action!

Pat Giordano made a return to the river after a few months off - obviously he's forgotten to TILT the the fish when having a picture taken! Nice Brown Pat! Photo: Michael Johnson
