Delaware River Report / Conditions October 30, 2018

Oct 30, 2018 No Comments by

Yesterday’s rain didn’t do too much to the river flows.  We are starting off this morning just about where we did yesterday.  The Beaverkill / Willowemoc are your best bets for wading.  Check the current NYS regs for open sections.  Streamers are your best bet still but you may see some olives and caddis so bring a dry fly rod with you.  We should see a little more sun today with the air temp hitting the high 40’s.  No additional rain in the forecast until tomorrow night.  The wind will be around 10 mph from the North.

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
Tiny Blue Wing Olives #20 – 26 – Psuedo sp.
Green Caddis – #16 – Ryacophila sp.
Tan Caddis #14 – 16 – Hydropsyche sp.

There is construction on Winterdale Road. A short stretch is closed near the Methodist Camp between us and Hancock. We have detours listed on our website here:
