Delaware River Report / Conditions October 25, 2021

We had some rain overnight and the river flows are slowly going up this morning.  As of the 5:30 am updates it doesn’t seem like a lot of runoff so far.  Click on the river gauge links below for the latest flow data.  Yesterday was a decent olive day with some Isonychias and Heptagenias on some sections.  The olives were definitely the most talked about hatch last night.  Streamers and nymphs worked well for people earlier in the day.  Today looks relatively dry with the air temp hitting 71 degrees.  Wind will be from the South 5 – 10 mph.  We may see an afternoon thunderstorm.   Tonight we may see an additional 1/2″ of rain.
