Delaware River Report: October 4, 2022

We woke up to some rain this morning. Total for the day should be around 1/2″. Some of that should soak into the ground and the feeder streams are relatively low so we shouldn’t see a huge affect today. If anything changes dramatically we’ll do a mid day update. The rivers are still low but people are wading and even floating some sections. We had decent olives mixed with a few Heptagenias yesterday afternoon and did have fish rising. Today looks like a good olive day with the air temp hitting 54 degrees and rain. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North.
