Delaware River Report / Conditions June 22, 2019

The river flows are dropping back slowly since the rain stopped.  Wading is still tough on most of the rivers but you should find some wadeable water in the upper sections of the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.  Water temps look great everywhere this morning.  The rivers have color but they are fishable and are clear enough that fish will rise if the hatches show.  We looking at a sunny day with winds from the North around 20 mph.  We may see some some stronger gusts but hopefully they don’t last too long.  The air temp should reach the low 70’s.  Luckily there is no real rain in the forecast for a week or o- just a few showers.  The rivers should settle down nicely and fish well with the higher releases.
