Delaware River Report / Conditions June 20, 2019

The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 1,499 cfs. That makes wading the West Branch more challenging. Your best bet will be the Beaverkill, it benefited from the rain earlier in the week.

Today we have some light rain falling this morning and a chance of thunderstorms later in the day. We’re still seeing the early summer mix of sulphurs, cahills, olives and some Isos. Evening fishing during the sunny days has been the most productive. With the drizzle and cloud cover today there may be more activity earlier in the day.
