Delaware River Report / Conditions October 2, 2021

Yesterday was pretty much as we expected with streamer and nymph fishing early with some dry fly action later in the afternoon.  Olives are still our best producing dry fly.  It was a good mix of sun and clouds.  It finally feels like Fall with co0l nights and cool days.  Definitely bring a fleece.  Today will be warmer at 73 degrees.  Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South. The best wade opportunities are over on the Beaverkill / Willowemoc.  The tailwaters are still running high with releases.
