Delaware River Report / Conditions July 14, 2021

We had some additional rain overnight but the West Branch is clear enough to fish out front this morning.  The flow at Hale Eddy has dropped quite a bit from yesterday and is starting off at 150 cfs this morning.  The West Branch above Oquaga Creek should be low and clear at 571 cfs. The upper West will be your best bet for a consistent hatch sulphurs and / or olives. Streamers should work well on the mid to lower WB but I would also carry some dry flies there too.  Today will be warmer hitting 82 degrees with  3 – 10 mph from the South.  We should keep the cloud cover and have a chance at some afternoon thundershowers.  So we’re looking at a warmer version of yesterday.


The flow at Hale Eddy is already dropping this morning.
