We are really in need of good soaking rains – our free-flowing rivers and streams are low – and it looks as though this could be the week we get some relief . The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls is flowing at 116 cubic feet per second; the average flow for this date is 117 cfs over 100 years of record-keeping. The East Branch Delaware at Fishs Eddy, which is controlled by bottom releases, is flowing  at 270 cubic feet per second, which is below the average flow of 347 cfs based on 60 years of record-keeping.  And after a series of extensive releases, the West Branch Delaware is back down to 556 cubic feet per second;  its average flow on this date is 680 cfs over 51 years of record-keeping.
