Delaware River Report / Conditions August 29, 2013

Aug 29, 2013 Comments Off by

Interesting does not begin to cover the weather yesterday. There was a localized thunderstorm that just sat over Deposit yesterday afternoon, and completely blew out Oquaga creek, which in turn blew out the West Branch. That being said, the river did not look completely like chocolate milk, and there were risers looking up in the evening. Overnight the river did hop back up again, and is already on  its way back down. If we have the clouds predicted today, even with the discoloration the fishing should be pretty dang decent, and the river will be wade-able again by mid day.

A slightly squinty Bruce Miller holds a nice 'Bow.

Wow! Bruce Miller knows how to smile for a picture!
