Delaware River Report / Conditions June 15, 2015

One of the rainstorms finally hit us!  All of the rivers in the system are high and still rising as of 6 am.  We have a lot of color in the water this morning but that should clear on the West Branch as the day goes on if we don’t get hit again.  The best news is the inflow into Cannonsville on the West Branch is 1,210 cfs and the East Branch flowing into Pepacton is 1,250 cfs.  Temps remain an issue on the Mainstem with Lordville over 70 degrees again this morning.  The Mainstem will rise for most of the day as the increased flow in the branches makes it’s way downstream.  The West Branch is wadeable this morning above Oquaga Creek with a flow of 272 cfs at Stilesville.  You should find the usual suspects up there with little olives, sulphurs, cahills, and isonychias.  Accuweather is calling for an air temp of 79 degrees today with light winds and some possible showers.

 

Finally we have water.  The WB is still wadeable above Oquaga Creek

The Mainstem is starting off over 70 degrees again this morning.  The lower East Branch is 67 degrees.  This is another day to leave those rivers alone and concentrate on the Upper East Branch or the West Branch. The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock peaked at 69 degrees yesterday so if you are on the lower river check the temps before you fish.
Find the cold water and you should see some sporadic daytime caddis activity mixed with an occasional sulphur.  A lot of the hatching has been coming during the last half our of light.  Some morning have even fished well with left over spinner and occasional hatches.

We did get some of the rain in the forecast last night but so far the flows have gone up the way we hoped.  There is a little more water in the system this morning but the water temperatures remain the same or are even a little higher. Stick to the West Branch and Upper East Branch for trout fishing today.  The gauge at Lordville is registering 71 degrees this morning with a peak of 74 degrees yesterday afternoon.  Great for smallmouth fishing, not so great for trout.  Fishs eddy is 67 degrees this morning.  Those water temps may drop slightly this morning before bottoming out and climbing again.  If you fish the lower West Branch double check the river temps with your thermometer.  The upper West and upper East will offer the best opportunities again today.  We should see the usual mix of sulphurs, cahills, and isonychias.  The heave been some caddis around offering sporadic daytime risers- especially along the shaded banks.
We have cloud cover this morning that should burn off by the afternoon.

Yesterday fished okay with some fish rising to a mix of sulphurs and a few isonychias.  Nymphing was still the best daytime option with the rivers falling and clearing.  Blind casting cahills and isos in riffles produced some fish.  The bright sun made the fish a little shy until the sun dropped.  Don’t leave the river too early since most of the dryfly action is coming in the last hour.  Sulphur and sulphur spinners are making up most of the fishing during primetime.
The Mainstem at Lordville peaked at 72 degrees yesterday and is starting off at 69 degrees at 5:45 this morning.  I would stay off the Mainstem this morning and double check the lower West and East Branches with a thermometer before fishing today.  The Upper West and East Branches will have the best temperatures and the most activity during this heat wave.

The river flows are dropping this morning and are clearing nicely.  The West Branch looks good this morning with good clarity and decent flows.  Streamers and nymphs worked okay yesterday with the key being on the water early.  The hatching was late in the day almost at dark with a mix of sulphurs, cahills, and a few isonychias thrown into the mix.
We are probably going to lose the the Mainstem to temperatures again today.  The Lordville gauge peaked at 68 degrees last night and is starting off at 66 degrees this morning.  We are looking at bright sun, light winds, and air temps in the 80’s.  Your best bet is to stay on the West Branch or upper East Branch for the cold water.  The hatching should be better in the upper sections of river.  Use your thermometer.

Yesterday was a tough day for hatching.  The water was up and down and off color but the fish were eating streamers.  We had some additional rain last night / early this morning but the rivers are beginning to drop.  The Mainstem may rise a little more this morning before it peaks.  We do have color in the rivers today but the upper East Branch in Downsville and the West Branch above Oquaga Creek should still be low and clear.  The system should clear throughout the day as the water drops.  Accuweather is calling for bright sun, warm air temps, and very light winds today.
The cool overnight air temps and increased flow helped drop the Mainstem water temperatures.  The Main at Lordville peaked around 69 degrees yesterday afternoon.  Even though the temps are starting off at 63 degrees this morning double checks the temps this afternoon with your thermometer.

We were hit by some pretty heavy rains last night bringing most of the rivers in the system up. The flows have begun to drop back this morning.  Accuweather is calling for an additional 1/4″ of rain scattered throughout today- hopefully it hits us.  We’re looking at air temps in the mid 70’s today with moderate winds.  The rivers look good from the bridges this morning with a little color coming in near the creek mouths.  The flow on the lower East Branch is still rising this morning so we’ll have to wait and see if more color is coming down from the Beaverkill System.  The West Branch is falling right now and looks good.
Sulphurs, cahills, and isonychias are the most predominant mayflies.  There are still some brown drakes hatching at night and / or early morning.  Tan and dark charcoal caddis have been hatching too.  The cloud cover should help the daytime fishing today.

Today looks like a little olive day.  We woke up this morning to overcast skies and rain.  The air temp should stay in the low 70’s so the water temperatures should not climb as fast or as high as they have over the past few days.  The lower East and the Mainstem are starting off a little warmer than we’d like to see but the rain just started and hasn’t had any effect on the flows yet. Keep and eye on the gauges for the latest information.  Hopefully we see all the rivers in the system rise throughout the day.  We should get a total of 1/4″ of water this morning with the possibility of thunderstorms adding more.  Accuweather is calling for 3/4″  of rain overnight which would be awesome for the rivers.  Along with olives definitely carry isonychia patterns on days like this.

The cool overnight air temps helped the system this morning and our water temps are starting of a degree or two lower than this time yesterday.  The sun is already shining and the fog is burning off quickly so if you want to fish the Mainstem hit it early.  Lordville water temps peaked over 70 degrees yesterday afternoon and we expect the same thing to happen today.  It is 65 degrees this morning on the Mainstem.  The West Branch at the 191 Bridge peaked around 66 degrees yesterday afternoon.
Yesterday was tough fishing in the sun.  Nymphing worked well during the day with a very light scattered hatch of sulphurs and stenos at dark.

We are starting off the day with higher water temperatures again so it’s time to fish with your thermometer.  The forecast is calling for the sun to break out this morning and stay with us all day, air temps in the 70’s, and light winds with gusts to 11 mph.  The hatches seem to be either earlier or later in the day due to the water temps.  We are seeing a good mix of little olives, cahills, sulphurs, and isonychias.  Don’t leave the river too early.  During the day nymphing has been effective with some fish rising on shaded banks.

Please keep an eye on the water temps today.  If the sun does pop the rivers will heat up quickly.

Yesterday was tough fishing despite the cool weather and cloud cover..  Some sections had decent hatches in the evening while other sections had a sparse collection of caddis, sulphurs, and cahills.  The sections that fished well had the same bugs, just better quantities.  Overall nymphing seemed to be the most productive method during the day.  Today we are looking at warmer air temps with highs reaching 78 degrees with a chance of some rain later in the afternoon.  The weather report is different on each channel so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.  Hopefully the rain hits us to help us get through the warmer weather and keep the reservoirs filled.

Yesterday was tough with a lot of bright sun, a few bugs, and a lot one one and two time risers.  There didn’t seem to be a lot of any one bug but we did see cahills, olives, sulphurs, large dark caddis, and isonychias out there.  They key seemed to be covering a riser quickly which really camde down to being in the right place at the right time and taking your shots as they came.  Nymphing did work well in the riffles during the day.  We did not see a lot of spinners at dark so hopefully that changes tonight.
Today”s forecast looks a little better with more clouds, air temperatures in the high 60’s, and a very light shower moving in overnight.
