Delaware River Report / Conditions June 7, 2016

Jun 07, 2016 Comments Off by

All of the the rivers in the system have dropped back considerably overnight and all seem to be in good shape this morning.  The West Branch looks great at 726 cfs at Hale and is clear. The forecast for the week is looking great with a chance of rain almost every day and much cooler nights.  A couple of nighttime air temperatures down in the 40’s and 50’s will be great for the water temperatures on the lower East Branch and on the Mainstem.  Unless we get a good rain the rivers will continue to drop over the next few days. There is no major accumulation predicted in the forecast.
There was a decent sulphur hatch yesterday in the evening mixed with a few stenos and caddis. Streamers fished well early with a lot of chases and some eats.
