The Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 10/30/10

Temperatures have dropped, and will continue to drop over the next several days given the forecasted lows this coming week.  Flows on the West Branch have dropped as well, but is currently floatable for the most part.  The East, and the Main Stem both have good water levels and are running slightly clearer than the West.  The insect activity has seemed to pick up a little the past couple days, with a fair number of small Olives, but there has been few rises, most likely due to the windy conditions we have had.  Rivers look good!
