On the Upper Delaware river Ephemerella subvaria (Hendricksons) normally begin hatchingsparsely in the second or third week in April, and hatching in great numbers by mid Maywith the mean being May 10th. The heaviest hatch activity falling between May 10th to the20th. In the last three years low water flows from the Cannonsville (Thanks to New York CityWater and their new valves.) combined with the warmer winters have greatly accelerated nymphgrowth in the upper Delaware. Remembering that mayfly nymphs are cold-blooded creatures, theirgrowth rate is directly dependent on water temperature. (Within reason, water that is to warmwill kill the cold water insects and warmer water insects will become dominant, but that’s along story in itself.) So with warmer year round water temperatures nymphs mature faster, andthe Hendrickson hatches have been considerably early, a month to be precise. Fly fishermantraveling to the upper Delaware expecting to fish the large Ephemerella subvaria hatches arefinding they are to late, instead of catching the Hendricksons at prime time they're alreadyfinished for the season.
