Delaware River Report / Conditions July 15, 2017

Jul 15, 2017 Comments Off by

We were hit with some decent rains yesterday and overnight.  The rivers are up a bit this morning but dropping back quickly.  The West Branch above Oquaga Creek didn’t budge and still offers decent wading this morning.  The flow at Hale Eddy is 978 cfs and dropping back so there are wade opportunities on the lower river too.  There is some color in the river this morning making it look like a great streamer morning.  If the bugs hatch it is clear enough for fish to eat so don’t go without a dry fly rod.  The West should clear throughout the day as the runoff subsides.  Today’s weather looks decent with low winds, cloud cover, and air temperatures in the 70s.
