Delaware River Report / Conditions October 6, 2021

Oct 06, 2021 No Comments by

We woke up o some light rain this morning.  That should end shortly and should not add any additional runoff to the rivers.  The West Branch is still high and off color.  The East Branch and Beaverkill flows have dropped a lot.  Everything is still too high for safe wading.  The upper stretches of the freestones should be fine for wading this morning.  Most people are catching fish on streamers early and olives in the late afternoon.  We should see 68 degrees today with little wind and decent cloud cover.  The 10 day forecast does not show any significant rain so the river flows should continue to drop.
