Delaware River Report / Conditions September 3, 2021

The West Branch looks great again this morning with a flow of 797 cfs at Hale Eddy.  That will drop slowly today.  The rest of the system remains high but those flows are dropping too.  Harvard is 595 cf so there are some Upper East Branch opportunities opening up.  The cooler nights have also helped the river temps.  Today we’ll have some cloud cover and way less wind than yesterday.  There is a chance of an afternoon shower.  Lots of blue wing olives, some caddis, and some isonychias.  Some of the warmer water sections should have some white flies.  And it is definitely time to carry flying ants.
