Delaware River Report / Conditions July 13, 2017

It looks like most of yesterday’s rain feel above Cannonsville.  The flow at Walton jumped to 748 cfs this morning while the flow below the dam remains around 400 cfs.  The fog made it tough last night but there were some fish eating the olives.  Nymphing seemed to be a better choice during the day although there were some sulphurs mixed in too.  We may see some thunderstorms today but most of them have been going north of us (like last night).  The rivers look fine this morning.  The water temperature on the West Branch is great starting off at 58 degrees this morning at the 191 Bridge.  The lower East Branch, lower Beaverkill, and Mainstem are all too warm to fish for trout. Mainstem temperatures are looking good for smallmouth around Callicoon.
