Delaware River Report / Conditions June 26, 2011

Apologies on the lack of post yesterday – the intern will be dealt with for shirking his duties. I don’t think the gutters have been cleaned in awhile…..

Yesterday we had cloud cover and rain from morning until evening, without great effect on the West Branch – clear and cool from Deposit all the way to Junction Pool. The East Branch was another story, pumping in chocolate milk at the confluence, bringing the Main Stem up dramatically. This has subsided somewhat, and the Upper Main may be fishable this evening, so far as clarity is concerned.
