Delaware River Report / Conditions May 24, 2011

Misty with a bit of fog here at the club this morning -great for river temps! The West Branch has stabilized and is dropping slightly, whilst the East Branch / Beaverkill system appears to have caught a bit of the precipitation that came to the area last night. We are anticipating a bit more rain, which will not (fingers crossed) significantly affect our flows. Give us a call if you need up-to-the-minute reports!
