Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill RIvers

May 2, 2017

MORE HIGH WATER

 

Last night some really heavy rain storms moved through our river valleys. These intense storms dropped several inches of rainfall into an already high river system.

 

This morning our rivers are still rising  or are just cresting. The flows are pretty big so the good dry fly fishing will be on hold for a few days.

 

Here are the current numbers for our rivers

Beaverkill                             4410

East Branch Upper             2300

East Branch lower               8970

West Branch                        2620

Main Stem Delaware          9440

 

With the heavy water and turbidity present, streamer fishing is about the only option. With the current flows the East and West Branches are the only options. The current flows on these rivers are in a range where our guides like to get our and throw large streamers.

 

This will be the main  technique for most of the week.
