Delaware River Report / Conditions April 14, 2020

Apr 14, 2020 Comments Off by

We didn’t get all day winds yesterday but we definitely got the rain.  All the river flows are way up this morning but are beginning to drop back.  The Beaverkill hit 10,000 cfs  yesterday but has already fallen to just over 5,000 cfs at Cooks Falls.  It’ll take a few days for that to run through the system.  The West Branch is in better shape but still high at 2,500 cfs.  It sounds like a lot of streams on the East Coast will be high for the next few days.  Wunderground isn’t showing any additional rain the forecast until Sunday. Check the gauge links below for the latest flows.

It’s okay to fish locally.  It’s not okay to travel long distances to fish.  So stay local for now.

We are following the State’s order and are closed right now.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:  https://drc-fly-shop.myshopify.com/

Let’s keep the local pictures going.  Since everyone should be fishing local to their homes send us pictures of your locally caught fish and we’ll put them here on the blog.  Even chubs would be cool.  Email them to flyfish@thedelawareriverclub.com
