Delaware River Report / Conditions July 6, 2013

It looks like the spill from the reservoir has stopped, which meas that all that water coming down from Stilesville is release water, and COLD water at that! It is always nice to see the temp at Hale Eddy start under 50 degrees in the morning! That has caused a pretty substantial fog bank up and down the river this morning as well, but with the hot temps predicted today, along with “partly sunny” weather, it should burn off by mid day. Yesterday there was definite dry fly action in the afternoon / evening on the lower West Branch, but the streamer bite was off a little bit, likely due to the patchy sun sneaking out from the clouds with a bit more frequency than we like to see. Today looks to be more of the same, but with the colder temps, we could see the shift to more “normal” summer sulphur conditions way up river in Deposit.
