Delaware River Report: October 24, 2022

We have light rain falling this morning it should not be enough to affect the river flows. We will keep the clouds and light wind and hit 64 degrees. It sounds like it will be a good blue wing olive day. Nymphing is probably your best bet early but we should see olive hatching early afternoon. The amount of bugs has varied a bit day to day but we have found fish eating. There were some caddis in the air yesterday but none hit the water where we were fishing.

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.
