Delaware River Report / Conditions August 3, 2017

Aug 03, 2017 Comments Off by

Well the weather report said there was a chance of a thunderstorm yesterday.  We definitely got one.  We had a good rain, wind, and a little hail.  We lost power for a few hours in the afternoon but everything returned to normal by the evening.  Balls Creek seemed to be the only one spewing color in the afternoon.  That’s due to some construction farther upstream.  That cleared by dark and all of the rivers look good this morning.  The flows bumped slightly on the eastern drainage and all of the river temps are starting off a few degrees colder than yesterday. The upper West Branch had the usual small olives and sulphurs.  The lower West definitely fished better with nymphs.  Today looks decent with cloud cover and air temperatures in the high 70’s.  Winds should stay under 5 mph.  There is another chance of a late afternoon thunderstorm but we’ll have to watch the radar to see how it tracks.
