Daily Fishing Report

We have no longer been recording the Daily Call in Report. 

October 19th - Area Overview 

Cold this morning but warming to 61. Partly cloudy. Low 50's and breezy Saturday, cooling to a high of 39 on Sunday.

 

Beaverkill / Willowemoc Rivers

Flow is 625 on the Beaverkill. We FINALLY have a great wadeable flow on the Beaverkill and Willow. Get in while you can!

Olives and isonychias are primary hatches. Nymphing stoneflies, isonychias and small mayflies has been the most productive. The banks are covered in stonefly and isonychia shucks. 

Bugs are currently Isonychia (10 - 14), Sulphurs (18 - 20) Cahills (Pink Lady) (12 - 16), Summer Paraleps (18), Midges & Olives (18+), Tricos (22-26)

Upper East Branch of the Delaware River

The Pepacton is .15 feet below capacity, and the release is down to 690 cfs and 883 at Harvard. Wading is not super easy but doable. Water is moving pretty good, but fishing has been decent with olives and Iso's. Good numbers of bugs hatching in the higher water.

Bugs are currently Isonychia (10 - 14), Sulphurs (18 - 20) Cahills (Pink Lady) (12 - 16), Summer Paraleps (18), Midges & Olives (18+), Tricos (22-26)

Lower East Branch of the Delaware River

Down to 1760. On the higher side but definitely wadeable.

Olives have been hatching and fish have been taken on dries and nymphs from the boats. Fall usually find lots of nymph eating rainbow trout. It is nice and cool due to the high release from the dam. 

Bugs are currently Isonychia (10 - 14), Sulphurs (18 - 20) Cahills (Pink Lady) (12 - 16), Summer Paraleps (18), Midges & Olives (18+), Tricos (22-26)

West Branch of the Delaware River

The Cannonsville Reservoir is 3.26 feet below capacity. The release is up to 1490. The water release temperature has been warm as the reservoir has been turning over.  2050 CFS in Hale Eddy. Great conditions right now from the boat considering how cold everywhere else is getting

Good afternoon surface activity with olives and iso's. Activity has been better down stream compared to Deposit.

Bugs are currently Isonychia (10 - 14), Sulphurs (18 - 20) Cahills (Pink Lady) (12 - 16), Summer Paraleps (18), Midges & Olives (18+), Tricos (22-26)

Main Stem of the Delaware River

Still pretty high from all of this falls rain, but will be back soon into fishable floating flows or wading on softer banks.

Good numbers of isonychias and olives hatching, as well as brown caddis. Fish are definitely looking up. Nymphing has also been very productive on all shapes and sizes, but probably not until the flows fall back a bit.

Bugs are currently Isonychia (10 - 14), Sulphurs (18 - 20) Cahills (Pink Lady) (12 - 16), Summer Paraleps (18), Midges & Olives (18+), Tricos (22-26)
