Delaware River Report: October 3, 2022

The flow at Stilesville is still very low at 106 cfs. It is okay for wading but floating is out of the question. River temps are in good shape due to the cooler weather. Most people nymphed yesterday but there were a few dry fly shots with small olives and Heptagenia. Running a dry dropper with an Isonychia could also be a good move today. We have good cloud cover but should not see any rain today. Wind will be a lot less today at 5 – 10 mph from the North.

The flow at Hale Eddy is low due to the low release from Cannonsville
