Delaware River Report / Conditions October 30, 2017

Oct 30, 2017 Comments Off by

The Eastern side of the drainage is blown.    The Beaverkill just hooked and is flowing at 19,500 cfs.  The flow at Fishs Eddy is around 23,000 cfs.  The West Branch came up but no where near the change experienced over there.  The high flows have not hit the gauge at Lordville but that will happen soon.  It looks like a lot of the rain has passed with just a few minor showers left.   If you’re in the area be careful.  There could be some flooding in the feeder creeks too.  The Beaverkill is still over National Flood Stage Level.  If you’re planning on fishing give it a few days to drop.  Right now the Beaverkill and East are at a dangerous level.  There are probably logs and junk floating down the rivers thats best not to get hit by.  Plus the 25 mph wind gusts in today’s forecast.  If you are in the area today go visit the Catskill Flyfishing Center or check out one of the local breweries.  The West Branch will calm down quickly.  Stay safe.  Tomorrow is another day.
