Delaware River Report / Conditions July 21, 2021

We were hit by more thunderstorms last night and all of the river flows are up this morning. Hale Eddy looks like it’s peaking over 4,000 cfs and is off color.  Cannonsville is not spilling yet so Stilesville is still at 1,400 cfs.  Pepacton is spilling.  Wading is not an option.  Throwing streamers from a boat is the best option.  Luckily the next few days look dry so hopefully the rivers will drop and clear a bit.  We had some Isonychias and olives on the lower West last night and some of the fish were getting on them.  That should pick back up once the flows drop.


The flow at Hale Eddy has peaked.  Hopefully we don't get anymore rain.
