Upper Delaware

Mid Week Update

Over the last 2 days the water levels have been dropping. The degree that the water has fallen depends on the river. Our freestones as always have dropped the most. The Willowemoc and Beaverkill have dropped dramatically from where they crested Monday morning.

The Tailwaters have dropped but they will eventually settle out and remain steady. When this happens it will likely be at flows that are either in the upper ranges of most wade anglers ability or above. This is due to both reservoirs spilling over their dams. We can expect to see high water here for some time. (now is a great time to book a float trip!)

With that said there should be some decent opportunity for wade fishing this weekend. My forecast for good wade fishing in a few days is however dependent on no additional rainfall. The current forecast looks like we have a good chance of getting hit again on Friday. Right now the forecast is a bit vague since it is always difficult to predict what happens in the mountains.

We will provide weather and accurate river reports as thing develop.

As of today Baxter House has no intention of cancelling our guided float trips that are scheduled. High water fishing is always good from boat and our guides know how to locate fish in about every flow stage.
