Delaware River Report / Conditions July 24, 2014

Jul 24, 2014 Comments Off by

That was quite a rain we were hit with last night.  Very brief and very heavy.  The Upper West Branch above most of the feeder streams looks like it came through just fine with barely a bump in flows.  Stilesville has already dropped back to it’s normal 609 cfs and should be fishable and looking good.  The mid to lower West Branch peaked around 1300 cfs but has already dropped back to 872 at Hale Eddy this morning.  It will be higher below Hale Eddy due to the feeder streams adding flow.  While the lower river has color it is fishable right now and should clear throughout the day and be in great shape tomorrow.  It is looking very good for streamers from a boat this morning.   Today should be cooler in the high 70’s.
