Delaware River Report: August 1, 2022

There was a pulse of cold water released from Cannonsville last night but theflow at Stilesville has already dropped back to normal. Hale Eddy is perfectly wadeable and the flow should drop back to normal slowly this morning. Small sulphurs, followed by small olives are making up most of the hatch. There are cahills and Isonychias around too. Nymphing and swinging wets has also paid off mid day. We’ll see a bit more sunshine today with the air temp hitting 81 degrees. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South.

The East Branch at Fishs Eddy, the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, and the Mainstem at Lordville all peaked over 70 degrees yesterday. Give these sections a break until we get cooler temps.
