Delaware River Report / Conditions July 29, 2014

Jul 29, 2014 Comments Off by

The storms that were predicted to hit us really didn’t amount to anything at all.  The West Branch saw a very small bump last night and the flow at Hale Eddy is 709 this morning and dropping back.  The water looks fine on the West Branch and lower East Branch so we are looking really good right now.  We are looking at some cooler weather over the next couple of days with highs in the low 70’s.  We are seeing the Pseudos on the mid to lower West Branch and upper Main Stem mixed with some sulphurs and Isonychias.  The upper West Branch Sulphur hatches are still going strong in the afternoons and on some days continuing right into the evenings.  We are moving some fish on streamers in the early mornings before the sun really hits the water.  The cooler air and water temps will push the trico hatches back a little so don’t leave the river too soon if you’re looking for them.  The West Branch water temp under the 191 Bridge is 55 degrees this morning.
