Delaware River Report / Conditions August 15, 2019

Aug 15, 2019 Comments Off by

It looks like we’ll get a break from the sun today.  Clouds should move in by noon followed by some scattered thunderstorms.  Total rainfall looks like 1/2″ spread out over 12 hours.  It’s like some of the storms will slide either North or South of us but we should get some precipitation from this one.  Definitely have your olive box ready along with your sulphurs and isonychias.  Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South.  It looks like a really good fishing day.  Wunderground is calling for rain tomorrow and Saturday too so this could be a really good weekend.

We kick off the Get Trashed River cleanup with an Iron Fly party at Riverside Tavern tomorrow night.  Saturday morning the cleanup begins at 10 am.  If you’re in the area stop by or if you’re fishing pick up some trash and bring it by at the end of the day.

Stop by this weekend and do some good for the river

Water temps are hot on the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, the East Branch at Fishs Eddy, and the Mainstem at Lordville.  Give the fish a break in those areas and fish colder water.
