Delaware River Report / Conditions October 6, 2016

Posted on October 06 2016

The cool nights have kept water temperatures in check despite the low water.  We are in for a couple of days of sun and light wind with a possible light rain on Saturday.  There are fish eating little olives on top with some fish eating isonychias on some arts of the system.  We did see quite a few fish chasing caddis pupa yesterday so swinging wet flies should work well.  Nymphing in the low water will work before the dry fly action starts.  Look for deeper water to nymph once the fog burns off and the sun hits the water.
The release from Cannonsville has been cut back again as the yo yo releases continue.  The release is 150 cfs this morning.  The Mainstem flow at Lordville is 494 cfs.  Of all the crazy release BS we’ve seen over the years this has to be way up there.
