Delaware River Report / Conditions June 25, 2020

Jun 25, 2020 No Comments by

It was cooler overnight so there was no pulse release from Cannonsville.  Hopefully that means less loose floating algae in the upper river today.  Today will look a lot like yesterday with a high of 80 degrees, sun with some clouds, and wind 5 – 10 from the West.  There is a slight chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.  The best day time dry fishing is in the coldest water but the evening sulphurs on the lower river sections is picking up.  Mix in some cahills and isonychias and it’s not bad for the end of June.  The cooler weather will certainly help until we get a reasonable release from Cannonsville.

The lower Beaverkill, lower East Branch, and Mainstem temperatures all peaked over 70 degrees yesterday.  The lower East at Fishs Eddy peaked close to 78 degrees.  Give those rivers a break until they cool down.
