Delaware River Report / Conditions October 3, 2018

Oct 03, 2018 Comments Off by

Yesterday’s rain started around lunch and continued all day with a few breaks.  It wasn’t necessarily heavy but it lasted long enough to blow the rivers out by early evening.  People did get some fishing in and had success on streamers before it got dark.  The West Branch is fine to float already this morning and we should continue to drop throughout the day.  It is off color and 2,790 cfs at Hale Eddy so it looks like another streamer day.  Wading is not an option anywhere on the system so stick to a drift boat if you’re going out today.  Luckily there is no real rain in the forecast for the rest of the week so we should settle back to normal over the next couple of days.
