River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 5, 2020

August 5, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

Tropical Storm Isaias moved through the area yesterday bringing a good deal of rain. We saw around 2.50″ at Haled Eddy.  The East Branch is up and off color as the Willowemoc and Beaverkill continue to drain. The Upper East is showing 1090 cfs at the Harvard Gauge,  Fish’s Eddy on the lower section is at 7170 cfs. Flows at Hale peaked around 1750 cfs yesterday evening, and then falling throughout the night. 830cfs currently. It should clear as the day progresses. This morning will provide a good opportunity to dust off the streamer rods while things settle.

Feel free to give us a call with any questions about river conditions.

Cross Current Guide Service is now booking Magic Hour trips in the evenings, 6pm to dark for $250.00 (two angler max).  These dates fill up quick so give us a call or email with any questions or booking requests.
