Delaware River Report / Conditions June 11, 2019

It rained most of yesterday afternoon.  It wasn’t particularly heavy, just a steady rain for hours.  The West Branch looks fine out front this morning.  It’s flowing a little higher than yesterday morning but is clear right now.  The flow increased at Hale Eddy a few hundred cfs and is at 892 cfs this morning.  It looks like it is about the peak on the graph.  Not too bad and should stay fine to fish today.  The Beaverkill and lower East Branch flows jumped quite a bit and neither of them are at a good level for wading this morning.  The flows should drop quickly over there so check the usgs gauges again this afternoon for the latest info.  The East Branch at Harvard is 682 cfs and still climbing right now.  The rain should be finished and we may even see a bit of sunshine this afternoon.  The air temp will be in the high 60’s.  The wind will pick up as the weather changes and then drop towards dark.
