Delaware River Report / Conditions July 14, 2017

We had a little rain overnight that has continued through this morning.  The West Branch looks good with just a small bump at Hale Eddy.  The lower East Branch has climbed the most running just under 1,000 cfs right now.  We should see some additional rain today with a few breaks in between.  Olives were once again the bug of choice last night.  We’re doing better fishing the smaller sizes so definitely carry flies #20 and smaller.  There are still a few isonychias, sulphurs, and cahills on the lower West Branch and the sulphur hatch has picked up a bit on the upper river.  Water temperatures are great on the entire West Branch and upper East Branch but too high for trout on the lower East Branch and Mainstem.  The release from Cannonsville is 401 cfs.
