Delaware River Report / Conditions October 9, 2020

Oct 09, 2020 No Comments by

The release from Cannonsville is up and the flow at Stilesville has settled in at 680 cfs.  We’ll be a bit warmer today hitting 65 degrees and only dropping to 49 degrees tonight.  Wind will be 5 mph from the South with gusts to 9 mph.  That will feel like a slight breeze after the last few days.  Olives and caddis will make up the bulk of the bugs with some isonychias and heptagenia mixed in on some river sections.  Nymphing and swinging wets will be the best bets early until the afternoon.  Some river sections had good olives yesterday afternoon and the fish were on them.  Keep an eye on the bigger pools for risers at this flow level.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The cloudiness will increase if they raise the release.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
