Delaware River Report: September 30, 2022

We’re coming off a cold night but we should begin to warm into the 60’s today. The wind was tough early yesterday but it did drop in the afternoon. Fall is definitely here so it’s still a lot of small blue wing olives, Heptagenia, some Cahills, and Isonychias. There are definitely caddis on the bushes so they’ll be on the water at some point. Wundergound is calling for light and variable wind today which is certainly an improvement. We’ll see a little sun but mostly cloud cover with a high of 64 degrees.
