Delaware River Report: October 10, 2023

The flows continue to drop as the runoff subsides. The West Branch and Upper East Branch are in great shape for wading. The Beaverkill flow dropped below 1,000 cfs at Cooks Falls opening up some additional wade opportunities. The wind will be half of what we’ve been dealing with so today should be a good day on the water. The small olives have been pretty consistent in the afternoons. We’re also still seeing some Heptagenia, Isonychias, and caddis but the olives have been the answer lately.

Today will be 59 degrees with a mix of clouds and sun. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South.

Olive Sulphur – # 18 – 20 – Heptagenia hebe
