Delaware River Report / Conditions June 28, 2013

Looks like we finally got one of those big storms to hit us, and not swing around. The rain just stalled over top of the Catskills last night, particularly on the West Branch basin. The river crested last night near 4,000 cfs, and is down to 3,440 at Hale Eddy as of this morning, but is definitely blown out at this point. It is dropping steadily, so I would expect the river to clear in short order, but would not expect much to happen at least this morning, but the streamer bite could definitely be back on as we progress throughout the day. If anything changes dramatically, I will certainly put an update here!
