Delaware River Report: October 23, 2022

It’s another morning of frost that will take a while to warm up. We’ll eventually hit 64 degrees with some clouds and light and variable winds. The cloud cover should help the mid afternoon olive hatches. Hopefully pushing them a little earlier in the day. Nymphing or wet flies should be decent early with potential olives from 2 pm on. Once the sun drops things have been shutting down. Today may be different with the low only dropping to 50 degrees. Any rain should happen overnight.

What’s Hatching:
Slate Drake – #14- Isonychia bicolor
Olive Sulphur – #18 – 20 – Heptagenia hebe
Dark Blue Wing Olive – #18 – 20 – deficiens, lata
Tiny Blue Wing Olive – #22 – 26 – Pseudocloeon sp.
Tan Spotted Sedge #16 – 18 – Hydropsyche sp.
