Delaware River Report / Conditions October 29, 2018

Oct 29, 2018 No Comments by

We have some light rain falling this morning but the river flows are still slowly dropping throughout the system.  If you are wading, the Beaverkill / Willowemoc offer the best opportunities.  Check the NYS regs for closed areas.  The West Branch is still off color from the 1,500 cfs release from Cannonsville.  It looks good for streamers this morning with the color and cloud cover.  The lower East and Main Stem should be in good shape.  If the olives hatch it should happen mid afternoon during the warmest part of the day.  Concentrate on the slower sections where the fish can set up to eat off the surface.  We’ll warm up over the next couple of days with Wednesday peaking just below 60 degrees.


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
