Delaware River Report / Conditions July 18, 2021

Jul 18, 2021 No Comments by

All of the river flows are way up this morning.  The Beaverkill  is over 5,000 cfs, the East Branch at Fishs Eddy is over 10,000 cfs, and the West Branch at Hale Eddy is just under 3,000 cfs.  There is some big water out there.  The feeder streams are adding a lot of water below hale so keep that in mind.  All of the rivers are going to be off color. It looks like Pepacton is spilling and Cannonsville is very close.  Stilesville is steady around 1,400 this morning.  Keep an eye on the gauge if you are up there in case the spill begins.  While not ideal at 1,400 cfs that is the only place there is a shot at wading today. Definitely not ideal.   If you do it be careful and watch for rising water.
