Delaware River Report: October 15, 2022

The Beaverkill and Lower East Branch remain high this morning but are dropping back. The West Branch and Upper East Branch flows remain steady and low. We’re coming off a cool night so water temps dropped a couple of degrees. Today will be 66 dgrees and sunny so the rivers should continue to drop and the water temps will climb back up today. Wind will be 10 – 20 mph from the south. If Wunderground has the wind forecast correct find spots that give you some cover during the day. Supposedly they drop towards dark. The olives were a little spotty yesterday but there were enough hatching with some caddis to get some fish looking up. Nymphing seemed to be the better bet.

What’s Hatching:
Slate Drake – 12- 14- Isonychia bicolor
Olive Sulphur – #16 – 20 – Heptagenia hebe
Light Cahill – #14 – Stenacron spp.
Dark Blue Wing Olive – #18 – 20 – deficiens, lata
