Delaware River Report: June 16, 2022

We were hit with thunderstorms around 4 am and it’s still raining a bit. The river flows are up and still climbing. The West Branch is off color out front. Click on the gauge links below for the latest flow information. This could be a rare streamer day for us. The flow at Stilesville hasn’t budged so that section of river should be clear an is 500 cfs. This may be a good day to fish streamers but there is always a shot at dries this time of year. Either way at least it’s not 85 degrees and sunny. The rain should stop this morning and we’ll be cooler at 73 degrees. Wind will be 10 – 15 mph from the North.

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