Delaware River Report / Conditions October 31, 2017

Oct 31, 2017 Comments Off by

The rivers have dropped back quite a bit from yesterday.  There was some flooding along the Willowemoc and Beaverkill but things seem to have settled down.  The West Branch at Hale Eddy is already flowing under 1,000 cfs this morning and should continue to drop throughout the day.  A lot of people in the Northeast are still without power but we seem to have come through fine in Hancock.  Air temps have cooled down a it but are still above normal for the end of October. When the winds are calm we are seeing decent caddis and tiny olives in spots.  There are some isonychia spinners around but the wind and rain have played havoc on the spinner falls the last few days.  We’ll supposed to have some wind today so it may be good start off with streamers and then go to nymphs and wets on the West.  If you can find a wind protected spot in the afternoon you have a shot of seeing a fish rise that you can mark.
