Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report August 1, 2010

Aug 01, 2010 Comments Off by

Cannonsville reservoir continues to release water! This morning the release was 828 cfs, this is a great level to keep the entire West Branch cool and also start to cool down the upper Main Stem as well. Yesterday there was good bug action on most of the river, it seemed as though the more consistent risers were on the lower West until dark. Many reports came from the upper West Branch throughout the day, most of which said there were plenty of bugs with few targets until nearly dark. It looks like we may have great flows for a few days, you may have the best luck by boat, but there are still wade-able stretches. Over the next 3 days we are looking at scattered and isolated thunder storms, overcast skies will bring good olives and fish should become more active now that they have had a few days to adjust to the cooler waters and higher flows.

West Branch at Hale Eddy, NY 905  cfs @ 47º
