Delaware River Report / Conditions October 8, 2018

Yesterday felt more like summer than fall. The weather the next few days will continue in this unseasonably warm trend until the weekend. Today should be overcast for much of the day, perfect for olives. The river levels throughout the system continue to slowly drop. The Beaverkill is at a great level for wading this week. The West Branch remains off-color from the release. Look for rising fish in the slow edges of the pools. We’ve been seeing small olives, Isos and some Steno spinners.
