Delaware River Report / Conditions August 14, 2017

At some point one of the localized storms hit a feeder and the West Branch had some color in it by the afternoon.  It stayed fishable but was definitely unexpected. When the sun broke through the clouds it was definitely hot.  Hopefully people found some shaded banks to work.  The WB is looking good this morning.  The runoff has subsided and the flow at Hale Eddy is 575 cfs.  We’re mostly fishing small olives with some sulphurs mixed in.  Wunderground is forecasting a mostly cloudy sky with air temperatures in the high 70’s.  Winds should stay very low.


The flow at Hale Eddy is dropping back to normal
