Delaware River Report / Conditions June 4, 2014

Looking at the USGS graphs this morning it seems most of the thunderstorms found the Beaverkill and missed us here on the West Branch.  There are reports the Beaverkill is off color.  Walton received some water and is dropping from 568 cfs this morning- Cannonsville is currently at 98.6% so I don’t expect any spill from these storms.  The flow at Hale Eddy is bouncing around form periods of rain but doesn’t seem significant.  Today looks like another warm and sunny day with some clouds coming in during the evening.  Fish should be working in the shaded areas.  Grey Fox, March Browns, Green Drakes, and tan caddis have all worked well.  We are also just beginning to see a few Brown Drakes and some of the large, early Isonychias.
