Delaware River Report / Conditions October 4, 2018

All of the rivers in the system are dropping back slowly from the rain.  Wading is not an option yet but the Beaverkill is 1,230 cfs so keep an eye on that river for the first opportunity.  We have 1/10″ of rain in today’s forecast and then we’re dry for a few days.  Streamer fishing from a drift boat is your best bet.  Try different patterns until the fish react.  As the water drops there may be some fish eating olives in the really slow tailouts of long pools so bring a dry fly rod just in case.
