  • Ben Sheard River Report For 26-Oct-2014

    Posted on 26-Oct-2014 by Ben Sheard

    The river system has been dropping a bit over the last week but very slowly due to the sporadic rain we've been getting. The West is still at 419 at Hale Eddy then down on the mainstem the flow is around 1,200. The lower East at Fishs' Eddy is 560 and the upper is 173 above the beaverkill. Please remember that the upper West is closed until the PA border. The fishing has remained pretty good for this time of year even with some decent dry fly activity with the warm weather. Small Blue Winged Olives from 18-24 are around on these warmer afternoons and with the lower water the fish are looking up. Bring some 14 Isonychia as well just in case you run into a few. Nymphs, like small pheasant tails or stoneflies are also great flies for this time of year when fished in the moving water. It's been a great year for fall fishing on the Delaware system so good luck.

    Another fairly warm October day today but the mercury is dropping and some light rain is coming. Please remember the upper West is closed from the Pennsylvania border all the way up to the reservoir for the annual spawning of the browns. The flow on the West is down dramatically from the very high release water we had for the last month plus. The upper river is around 175 and down at Hale Eddy the flow is a bit over 600. With the recent rain and water changes throughout the system it is hard to tell what will happen with the fishing but it will probably remain good. The mainstem is flowing at just below 2,000 cfs now and has been fishing very well, especially for this time of year. The bugs will remain the same, mainly small olives form18-24 and Isoncyhia from 14-16. Streamers should remain effective as well with a slight tint to most stretches. We will keep you posted as we get some more reports. Lotsa' luck
