Delaware River Report / Conditions August 2, 2020

Aug 02, 2020 No Comments by

We had a little rain overnight but not enough to bump the flows as of 6 am.  The total rainfall for the day should be around 1/10th” but there are some thunderstorms in the area that could drop more.  The ground is still dry despite the rain over the last few days so any precip. will probably get get absorbed.  Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the South and the air temp will be 86 degrees.  The cloud cover is great though and it looks like a good day to be on the water.  Just keep an eye on the radar.

Definitely have some lives handy along with your small sulphurs.  Caddis and a few isonychias have been around and hopefully show up today with the good weather.

The lower Beaverkill, lower East Branch, and Mainstem temperatures are all peaking over 70 degrees.  Give those rivers a break until they cool down.
