Delaware River Report / Conditions October 5, 2018

Oct 05, 2018 Comments Off by

We had a little more rain yesterday than the 1/10″ predicted by Wunderground.  All of the river flows jumped a bit but have now settled back to where they were yesterday morning.  The West Branch looks good for streamers this morning.  We did see a couple of fish rise yesterday.  Little olives are around plus we saw more caddis along the bushes than we’ve seen in quite a while.  The West is still off color but it doesn’t seem to bother the fish.  Less water would help the system at this point.  Wading is still not an option but the Beaverkill flow is down to 1,100 cfs and dropping.  If Wunderground is correct we shouldn’t see any precip until Sunday.  That should be .08″.
