Enough is enough !

Posted on June 25 2015

Two weeks ago the river system needed rain badly.  The River Master
had already called for water to reach minimum flow requirements
downstream and the flow into the reservoirs was way below normal.
Today the system is 99% full and it is coming in faster than it is
being released.

While it is always good to have full reservoirs it is also nice to be
able to fish the entire system. For the last two weeks the big
river,the lower East Branch and the Beaverkill have been out of bounds
for most wade fishermen due to the high water.  These  three streams
are often unfishable during the hottest part of the summer due to high
water temperatures and we are about at the end of the normal period
when you can expect to fish them.The prediction for the next three
days is for over an inch and a half of rain. This would again make
these streams too high to wade.

If the rain comes as predicted Pepacton will surely overflow and
Cannonsville may soon follow raising the level of both branches to a
height where they can not be safely waded..
