Delaware River Report: October 13, 2023

The rivers are in good shape this morning. Flows are still dropping slowly and water temps are starting off about the same as yesterday. We should see the afternoon olive hatch again. Plus a few Heptagenia, Isonychias, and caddis. We’ll have a bit more wind today than the last few days but the olives should still hatch. Look for wind protected areas if it stays steady. Nymphing or swinging wets early would be a good bet. Stay below Hale Eddy due to the algae still.

Today will be 58 degrees with sunshine and a few afternoon clouds. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the North.
