Delaware River Report: October 17, 2022

The river flows are still dropping slowly but are all in good shape this morning. Wading is an option everywhere. Floating will be best on the Lower Eat Branch and Mainstem. It looks like it should be a decent blue wing olive day. and definitely have a few Isonychias ready. The air temp will be cooler hitting 58 degrees but we’ll have good cloud cover and maybe some afternoon showers. Wind will only be 5 – 10 mph from the South.
