Delaware River Report: April 18, 2023

We had a little more rain than we expected yesterday morning. The tailwater flows didn’t really budge. The Beaverkill flow bumped up about 100 cfs which is a good thing since it was getting a bit low. Everything looks good this morning. People saw the normal mix of Hendricksons, blue quills, and olives. The little black caddis and stoneflies are still around in good numbers too.

Today will be cooler with the air temp peaking at 48 degrees. We may see a few negligible rain showers with wind 10 – 15 mph from the West.
