Delaware River Report / Conditions April 16, 2014

Well that was an interesting storm yesterday.  Lots of rain, some ice, and then some snow.  The wind was a bonus!  The West Branch is off color but starting to clear like normal.  Today air temps are going to be in the mid 40’s and in the 20’s at night.  If you are going to fish today the upper West Branch looks like the clearest and lowest water in the system.  Above Oquaga Creek should be fine and the rest of the river will continue to clear throughout the day.  Cannonsville is 98.1% and the release is 1502 cfs.

Lets look at the Cannonsville inflow.  The West Branch above Walton is 4,220 cfs and Trout Creek is running 198 cfs.  Add in all the little feeders to the reservoir and we have a lot of water flowing in right now.  Great news for the next few weeks!

 

The view out front this morning- it will look better by the weekend!
