Delaware River Report / Conditions July 19, 2017

Jul 19, 2017 Comments Off by

The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 599 cfs.  This will be good for the river since even the lower West Branch got warm yesterday in the bright sun.  Look for the bugs in the colder water.  There were sulphurs, olives, and a few isonychias hatching yesterday.  We are looking at another warm day with air temperatures approaching the high 80’s.  We should have some clouds around which will help but look for places that get early shade for risers.  This is going to be a good day to fish the Stilesville area during the day. The lower East Branch, lower Beaverkill, and Mainstem are all too warm for trout.  The lower Mainstem temperatures look great for smallmouth as an alternative.  The air temperatures will cool down toward the weekend.

Water temperatures are great on the upper West Branch
