Delaware River Report / Conditions June 4, 2021

Jun 04, 2021 Comments Off by

The West Branch flow at Hale Eddy went up to 791 cfs this morning.  It’s runoff from Qpuaga Creek which has bumped to 155 cfs from the rain.  Not a big change and the other river flows haven’t budged below the dams.  Clarity is fine.  The West Branch flow above Cannonsville is 860 cs so most of the rain went North of us.  According to Wunderground we have a 50% chance of scattered storms to day but they have the rainfall total as .06″.  We’re warming up and the  air temp will hit 76 degrees with light wind.  Yesterday was a nice overcast day and the rain held off until the evening.  The wind was definitely less than predicted here on the lower West Branch.  There was the usual mix of bugs and people found fish rising.
