Delaware River Report / Conditions July 21, 2014

Jul 21, 2014 Comments Off by

We woke up to another cool morning in the low 60’s which is great for the river system- let’s hope it continues all Summer.  The West Branch continues to be in awesome shape for late July with decent Sulphurs in the Deposit are and Summer Stenos and Isonychias on the lower sections.  The hatches are going strong up top but we have also had some surprisingly decent mid day hatches of Cahills on the lower sections.  A lot of the tiny Blue Winged Olives have been coming off mid morning, not too long after the fog burns off.  The West Branch is 56 degrees in Hancock this morning and the flows are steady and perfect for wading and floating.  The water temperatures are decent on the rest of the system and the flows are still slowly dropping back.

 

Finding solitude on the West Branch.  What a pretty start to the day
