Delaware River Report / Conditions October 30, 2020

Oct 30, 2020 Comments Off by

It’s been raining since yesterday morning so the river flows are up this morning.  This morning we will change to rain mixed with snow for a bit and then hit 40 degrees in the afternoon.  It’s going to be a cold weekend and then warm back up next week.  The flow at Hale Eddy is already dropping but keep an eye on the gauge for the latest flows since it is still raining.  Streamers and nymphs will be your best bets this weekend but you may get a shot at little olives in the slow pools and tailouts.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The higher the release the more color will be in the river.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
