Delaware River Report / Conditions July 29, 2020

Jul 29, 2020 No Comments by

Another night and another pulse release from Cannonsville.  The flow at Stilesville peaked around 650 cfs but is already dropping back this morning.  The flow should drop back to where we’ve been with a release around 460 cfs.  It’s a little cooler this morning and the water temps have dropped a couple of degrees.  It’s going to get warm again and we’ll be at 86 degrees this afternoon.  Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South with a slight chance of an afternoon thundershower.  So the fishing should be about the same with the daytime activity closer to the dams and a shot at dries early and again in the evening on the lower West.

The lower Beaverkill, lower East Branch, and Mainstem temperatures are all peaking over 70 degrees.  Give those rivers a break until they cool down.
