Delaware River Report: October 19, 2022

Yesterday was a mix of sun and clouds with some small olives hatching in the afternoon. On the days the temp drops fast the bugs have been ending earlier. And the spinners have been mixed with the duns. Much like the hatching in early Spring. Today will be cooler with the air temp hitting 46 degrees and dropping to 31 degrees overnight. We’ll have clouds and wind 10 – 15 mph from the south. Nymphing will be a good bet early. Look for the olives during the warmest part of the day.

Slate Drake – #14- Isonychia bicolor
Olive Sulphur – #18 – 20 – Heptagenia hebe
Dark Blue Wing Olive – #18 – 20 – deficiens, lata
