Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report 8/25/10

Aug 25, 2010 Comments Off by

Today’s overcast conditions should produce more olive activity.  Yesterday evening, olive spinners were out in numbers with fish on them; we are anticipating more of the same today. The West Branch has cleared up nicely and is currently flowing at a level that is good for both wade fishermen and drift boats. Water levels are on the drop, so keep an eye on the gauges if planning a float. We suspect this pattern will remain this way until the water level at Montague, NJ gets back to normal.

West Branch at Hale Eddy, NY 590  cfs @ 56º
East Branch at Harvard, NY 232  cfs @ 58º
