Delaware River Report / Conditions July 20, 2021

The West Branch flow at Stilesville is a steady 1,400 cfs.   The gauge is off a bit but all that matters is that it’s steady.  No spill from Cannonsville.  Pepacton is spilling a bit.  The rivers are dropping slowly as the runoff subsides.  Wading is still not a great option.  The West Branch has some color in it but it is definitely clear enough to fish.  Most people will be throwing streamers but it is clear enough for fish to eat dry flies.  If the bugs are there fish will eat them.  We’ll have sunshine today with a chance of a stray shower.  We may see 1/4″ of rain overnight.
