Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report July 30, 2010

Jul 30, 2010 Comments Off by

With the current low water levels, Cannonsville reservoir has once again opened its valves to 599 cfs in order to help meet the target flow at Montague. With this flow of 599 cfs the West Branch is once again floatable. Wade fishing is also still a good option, at these levels the whole West Branch should be wade able. Yesterday we saw long stretches of little to no bug activity, but today with the cooler air temperatures and increased flows the insect activity should pick up and a greater portion of the West Branch should start to fish well once again.

West Branch at Hale Eddy, NY 670  cfs @ 49º
East Branch at Harvard, NY 135  cfs @ 60º
