Delaware River Report / Conditions April 11, 2012

UPDATE: The West has gotten a little bit of color since this morning, but is by no means blown out.

The rain we have been hoping for finally made it. That being said, the Beaverkill and East Branch seem to have taken the brunt of it, making two big jumps in the last 36 hours. As such, the East and Main are pretty much blown out – they will likely settle throughout the day, as the flows decrease, and the rain lets up. The West Branch was spared, but did make a nice jump up over 1000 CFS at Hale Eddy, but leaving us nice and clear. We’re already dropping, but Home Pool is still probably around 1,200 CFS. If this decline is gradual, we could be set up for some great fishing in the coming week & weekend. Fishing was slow yesterday, and the bugs didn’t really come out to play, except for the upper reaches of the West Branch (No-Kill section). The air pressures have calmed down, and with little wind predicted today, we could be seeing some decent activity on that front. Otherwise, it at least LOOKS like perfect olive weather up here with overcast skies, and tons of humidity.


Yeah. The East Branch jumped a little.
