Delaware River Report / Conditions August 12, 2015

Most of the system is dropping back to normal flows this morning after the rain.  The West Branch stayed clear enough to fish throughout the weather and is a nice 621 cfs at Hale Eddy this morning.  There was some color coming off the Beaverkill into the East Branch but that is also subsiding this morning.  Accuweather is calling for cooler weather today with air temps in the low 70’s.  We may get a brief / light thunderstorm this afternoon with precipitation toals of less than a 1/10 of an inch.  Cahills, olives, isonychias, and sulphurs are all still hatching.  The trico fishing has picked up a little once the fog burns off the water.
