Delaware River Report: July 6, 2022

So far all of the storms have gone around us so the rivers are starting off at pretty much the same flows as yesterday. The water temps did drop a couple of degrees overnight. We have decent cloud cover this morning but we should see some sun in the afternoon. The air temp will hit 78 degrees with wind 5 – 10 mph from the North. We’re seeing some mid afternoon sulphurs in the coldest river sections with some cahills and Isonychias mixed in. A few people are finding some fish on caddis early. The other river sections are seeing the best hatching towards evening.

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.
