STAY WITH THE TROUTFITTER ON THE DELAWARE RIVER (607) 298-2149

Delaware River Report / Conditions October 12, 2016

Posted on October 12 2016

The release from Cannonsville has been raised to 326 cfs this morning.  Yesterday fished better with a nice hatch of small olives, caddis, and isonychias.  Nymphing and swinging wets is still the most productive method but there were enough fish feeding on the surface to make it interesting.  Today’s weather looks similar to yesterday with winds under 10 mph, sun, and air temperatures in the mid 60’s.  We have a decent chance of receiving 1/4″ of rain tomorrow but most of that will soak into the ground.

Hatching:
Slate Drake – #12 – 14- Isonychia bicolor
Olive Sulphur – #18 – 20– Heptagenia hebe
Tiny Blue Winged Olive – #22 – 26 – Psuedocloeon spp.
Blue Winged Olive – #18 – 20 – E. lata
Tan Caddis – #16 – 20 – Hydropsyche spp.
Dark Brachycentrus sp. – #14 – 18 – Dark Grannom
Little Black Caddis #18 – 20 – Chimarra sp.
Blue Winged Olives #16 – 18 – Baetis vagans (updated name: Baetis tricaudatus)
