Delaware River Report / Conditions August 4, 2018

Aug 04, 2018 Comments Off by

We have a few storms roll through yesterday that dropped quite a bit of water in a short amount of time.  The West Branch came through alright and is beginning to drop this morning.  Stilesville is a steady 597 cfs while Hale Eddy is 2,230 cfs and falling.  Fishing above Oquaga Creek will be your best bet for clear water and dry fly fishing.  Sulphurs, olives, and isonychias.  Below Deposit streamer fishing should be decent as the river drops and clears throughout the day.  The East Branch is Downsville is a low 166 cfs but there is quite a bit of water coming down the feeder creeks to make the flow 1,460 cfs at Harvard.  There is no rain in the forecast for the next few days so the rivers should drop and clear.


The Stilesville flow is steady despite the rain
