Delaware River Report / Conditions October 30, 2013

Once again, things actually went according to schedule. Bugs and fish on the West from about 2PM until 5:30 PM or so, mostly olives but with the occasional Iso thrown in for good measure. Today we’ll likely see it start a bit earlier, as the temps will be in the mid to high 50s, and hopefully go a bit longer into the evening. NYC did drop our flows a tad down to a 593 release, but that should not adversely affect the fishing too much. There are still a handful of Stenos out there, so be looking for yellow bugs, as well as the possibility of some late season flying ants, at least on the Main Stem – had a report of those guys being out yesterday! Get out there and have some fun while the season is still here!
