Delaware River Report: April 13, 2023

The West Branch flows are steady sine it’s mostly release. The East Branch drooped slightly but is still running a little high. Some people are finding a few places to wade on the tailwaters but the best wading is still the Beaverkill and Willowemoc. Nymphs and streamers are still your best bet but there were a lot of stoneflies and caddis out yesterday. The wind certainly did not help at times. We did find some blue wing olives and blue quills so things should be picking up

Today will feel like summer again. We should hit 84 degrees with sun. Wind will be a little more reasonable 10 – 15 mph from the North. The hourly shows the wind tapering down in the late afternoon.

What’s Hatching:
Tiny Black Stonefly – #18 – Capniidae sp..
Little Black and Brown Stoneflies – #14 – 16 – Taeniopteryx sp..
Little Black Caddis – #18 – 20 – Chimarra sp.
