That was some rain. We had it falling both calmly and in driving sheets throughout the day yesterday, and on the West Branch, it seems that the ground absorbed most of the water. We have had a slight bump in flows on the West, but the East / Beaverkill obviously took the brunt of it, with the East Branch near Fish’s Eddy peaking near 25,000 cfs (yes, you read that correctly). This is blowing the Main Stem out as well, so the West looks like the only game in town for the next few days. We are looking at a brighter day today, but temperatures are not supposed to get above 65, which will be a good thing for those heading out in the afternoon, as well as the evening. The bugs took advantage of the lower atmospheric pressure brought on by the storm yesterday, and the side of the shop is covered with a little bit of everything listed below. Thanks rain!
