  • Ben Sheard River Report For 22-Aug-2014

    Posted on 22-Aug-2014 by Ben Sheard

    We did get an inch plus of rain last night and all of the rivers came up a bit but didn't really get "blown-out". The West Branch at both Stilesville and Hale Eddy is flowing in the low to mid 900's due to some rain and an increase in release from Cannonsville of 860 cfs this morning. The river is a bit high for some but this increase in release is really going to help eliminate a lot of the algae that is present up around Deposit. The water is slightly stained but really looks great, not muddy but just a little turbid and green, great for streamers and dries. The Sulpurs should still be on their 12-1pm schedule with the warmer air temps. It's overcast now and looks to be a good day for bugs like Olives in 18-24 and Isonychia in 10-12. The mainstem is still in good shape, with flows under 2,000 all the way down to Callicoon, as the Beaverkill and East Brach really didn't get hit at all with lower flows on both of those rivers. Bring along you terrestrial box too this time of year, we've been seeing some decent numbers of 18 Black Flying Ants that we all know can be deadly this time of year. The weekend should be excellent, especially after the much needed flush of water on the West. Lotsa' Luck

    The rain we got last night didn't really dirty up the river too much and the river is still at 744 cfs at Hale Eddy. The rivers did bump a little and we are looking at more rain for today but that's not a bad thing. The stained water that may result will be great as the fish are more likely to make mistakes then. The Sulphurs in 18-20 have still been very good from 12-1pm on. Small droppers and some creative patterns will help you fool a few fish during the recent Sulphur hatch which is definitely one of the toughest hatches to deal with on this river. Small Blue Winged Olives in the 18-24 range have been around on the cloudy days throughout the system. The levels and the temps are great all the way down on the mainstem as well with a some Sulphur, Cahill, BWO and Isonychia activity throughout the afternoon and into evening with the nice cloud cover. We are gonna get hit with some rain later but even if the river goes up a bit it would be great to clear out some of the algae around Deposit, we just haven't had enough rain to bring that section of the river up over the last few months. Lotsa' Luck
