Delaware River Report: July 25, 2022

We had some storms pass through overnight and woke up to some light rain this morning. So far the West Branch gauge shows the flow as a steady 500 cfs. The Beaverkill flow has bumped up slightly. If anything major changes we’ll do an update here.

Today we’ll have decent cloud cover with some rain. Total rainfall should be a non factor at .17″. There may be some storms in the afternoon with decent wind gusts and more rain but hopefully the slide around us. The air temp will hit 80 degrees. Olives, sulphurs, and cahills. If the wind does pick up nymphing or swinging wets will be a good option this afternoon.

The East Branch at Fishs Eddy, the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, and the Mainstem at Lordville all peaked over 70 degrees yesterday. Give these sections a break until we get cooler temps.
