Delaware River Report / Conditions August 11, 2015

Aug 11, 2015 Comments Off by

We did get hit by some decent rain last night and the rivers have come up this morning.  While the flows are rising we were starting off low for most of the system so we’re in good shape so far.  If anything changes we’ll do a mid-afternoon update and suggest you click on the gauge links below for the latest updates.  The lower West Branch is a little chalky below Sands Creek but fishable at 7:30 am.  We’re not sure what the color of Oquaga Creek is so if you’re fishing in Deposit take a look before you commit to a spot.  Some of the lower Mainstem tributaries are pushing some dirty water.  We should get more precipitation throughout today but if Accuweather is to be believed it will be scattered.  Olives, sulphurs, cahills, and isonychias are the mainstay.  There are a few more tan caddis around so definitely keep your eyes open for those.  If we get more color in the system it could turn out to be a great streamer day.
