Delaware River Report / Conditions October 31, 2012

Well here we are. Halloween. The last day of the season for us here at the DRC. Fortunately we still have a lodge to close up for the year after Sandy decided to spare us. I would like to thank each and every one of you for being faithful readers and customers – it couldn’t be done without you! I also promise to not leave a clip art cat on here for the entire winter, and will definitely be adding content weekly if I can, so check back when you get a chance! We will be in the office for a few hours during the week, so feel free to call us at the shop if you need anything at all!

As for the river, no one was out yesterday, but I am seriously considering a streamer run tomorrow (our first day closed) on the West Branch. Color and level are perfect, and the overcast / rainy weather we are expecting will only help to make it a better day. The rest of the week looks like a carbon copy of today, with cooler temps and misty/rainy conditions all the way until the weekend. This will mean a later start to the hatching most likely. Good luck out there if you head out, and be safe if you are recovering from the storm!

Although you can’t see his face, this is Scott Dawson holding a beautiful, beautiful Brown. The importance of this picture? Our little Scotty is growing up, and has FINALLY learned how to properly hold a fish for a picture. It has taken several years, as well as many interventions to get him to this point, so please be as proud of him as I am. Photo: Nate Eckhaus
