Delaware River Report: October 14, 2023

The river levels are good this morning and the forecast isn’t calling for a lot of rain. Today looks good with cloud cover, 1/4″ of rain, and no real wind. The air temp will stay lower than we’ve seen for a bit but that’s a fair trade to have no wind for a change. It definitely feels like a blue wing olive day. Again keep a few Heptagenia, Isonychias, and caddis handy but count on the olives. Nymphs and wets should fish well early with the cloud cover.

Today will be 49 degrees with rain. Total rainfall should be .25″. Wind will be light and variable.
