Delaware River Report / Conditions May 16, 2020

May 16, 2020 Comments Off by

We had some pretty good rain last night so all of the river flows are up this morning.  The flow at Hale Eddy peaked a little over 3,000 cfs and is already beginning to drop.  The West Branch is off color.  Hopefully it clears as it drops today.  We shouldn’t see any more precipitation until Monday.  If you want to wade look towards the headwaters of the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.  Those upper stretches will drop first.

We are now allowed to guide one client at a time in Pennsylvania.  If you would like a solo guided trip or guided trip with an immediate family member from the same household, send us an email at or call 570-635-5880 and we’ll try to fit you in.  Our lodging is now open.

We are following the State’s order and the shop is still closed to walk in business.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:

Curbside pickup is now a shipping option in the online store.
