  • Ben Sheard River Report For 22-Apr-2014

    Well, all of the rivers have continued to drop a bit over the last 24hrs and the West Branch at Hale Eddy is slightly over 2,000 cfs and it appears that we lucked out with the storm coming through. Although the storm hasn't completely passed us it looks like we will get very little rain out of it, if any. Good news to most of us who are waiting to get our feet wet. The West still won't be wadeable for a while but more rain would have pushed that date even further out. The fishing remains the same, decent to good streamer activity on a variety of bugs and a little dry fly fishing here and there but nothing consistent on top. Wednesday and Thursday this week look to be a bit cooler and windy. Hang in there.

    After a weekend of decent streamer activity all of the local rivers are dropping and clearing at a pretty consistent rate. The overall clarity of most of the local streams is excellent with at least 4 ft of visibility, sometimes more. The West is now 2,120 cfs up at Stilesville, about 600 cfs of that is flow coming over the top of the dam, the other 1,500 is bottom-released. The Hale Eddy flow dropped about 300 cfs in the last 24 hours bringing it to 2,400. The upper East Branch at Harvard is down to 1,880 cfs and below the Beaverkill the flow is 2,740. The Main Delaware at Lordville is 6,290 with a temp of 44, the warmest in the area. The Beaverkill is flowing at 929 cfs offering a little bit of wading if boat access isn't an option. The streamer fishing has been pretty good to average depending on where you are floating and skill level / fly selection, a few key factors. Baitfish imitations, tied as realistic as possible, are working well when fished properly. Lots of follows and few hookups are indicative of unrealistic flies. Getting looks and rolling fish are easy, hooking up is the key. There have been decent numbers of Little Black Stones in size 16-20 as well as some Blue Quills in size 16-18 with a few fish looking up on most days. The dry fly fishing should get good sometime in the near future if we don't get hit with more rain. The river's volume, temperature and bug activity are starting to line up and the hatches are on "schedule" for this time of year. Enjoy this week's solitude as its gonna get busy for a while starting this weekend. Lotsa' Luck
