Has anyone seen the flows in the Catskill Rivers?
It makes me shudder. East Branch is about 1/3rd.
normal for date.

I was thinking that we've had enough rain in the NE to have all streams at good levels. But the damn people do control Delaware flows (no misspelling) How's the West Branch looking? Around here there is plenty of water.

Louis,
West Branch at Hale Eddy normal is 875 cfs,
while today it is 250 cfs.

Beaver Kill at Cooks Falls normal is 650 cfs,
while today it is at 380 cfs.

Pity the poor fly shops.

Fishs Eddy is just 650 cfs and main is just 1050 cfs. That is almost the minimum for me to float the Hyde w/o dragging in three places. WB is too low to float even with a pontoon boat or kayak.

I'm going up tomorrow for three days and will provide a report Sunday night.

Unbelievable. What happened to the flow plan? Let me know how things are looking.

Hey, look on the bright side... you can still drive a truck across many of the rivers up here!
