Delaware River Report: July 14, 2022

We were hit with some additional thunderstorms yesterday but the West Branch looks fine this morning. There may be a small tint but we can see the rocks under the water on the other side of the river so it’s definitely fish able. Yesterday fished the same with mid day small sulphurs, cahills, and olives in the coldest river sections. The lower sections has some sulphurs but mostly olives as the sun dropped. We’re back to sunshine today with the air temp hitting 78 degrees. Wind will be 5- 10 mph from the North.

The East Branch at Fishs Eddy, The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, and the Mainstem at Lordville all peaked close to 70 degrees yesterday. It’s time to give these sections a break until we get cooler temps.
