Delaware River Report: June 9, 2022

We had some rain overnight and the river flows are up this morning. Hale Eddy is 780 cfs and climbing. Some of the feeders are adding color but it’s not fully across the river in Home Pool as of 7 am. We’ll keep an eye on it and update if anything changes. Click on the links below for the most up to date flow information. Wunderground only shows an additional .01″ of rain today so we should peak and settle a bit by late afternoon. We’ll see 68 degrees with wind 10 – 20 mph from the North. The lower West Branch is clear enough for fish to rise this morning. If you can hide from the wind you should see sulphurs, cahills, and olives. Some people will throw streamers today but nymphing is still a good option.
