Delaware River Report: October 9, 2022

Yesterday was cold and windy with a decent afternoon olive hatch. The fish were eating despite the weather. Almost every day were seeing a decent number of #18 – 24 olives so definitely look for risers from 2 pm on. Last night was cold (34 degrees) and dropped the water temps a few degrees so that may push the timing off a little bit. We’ll warm up to 56 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the West.
