Delaware River Report: June 2, 2022

We were hit with some decent storms last night but the rivers look good this morning. The West Branch at Hale Eddy is 726 cfs and dropping. We’re still at a decent level for floating and wading. The West is clear out front and the East Branch looked clear in Hancock at 6 am. Most of the rain must have soaked into the ground. Today we have a slight chance of some rain but should just see clouds with the air temp hitting 76 degrees. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North. Caddis, march browns, gray fox, sulphurs, cahills, brown drakes, and green drakes.
The Mainstem at Lordville, East Branch at Fishs Eddy and Beaverkill at Cooks Falls all came close to 70 degrees yesterday despite the cooler weather. It’s still time to give these rivers a break until we get a serious cool down.

The West Branch flow is clear out front this morning and already falling
