Delaware River Report / Conditions April 16, 2015

Apr 16, 2015 Comments Off by

The water temps look pretty decent this morning throughout the system.  Hale Eddy is starting off at 44 degrees this morning.  The forecast is calling for an air temp high of 66 degrees, sun, with some clouds moving in later.  That should heat the rivers up a bit hopefully triggering some activity.  Some minor rain might move in tonight but the best news is the cloud cover will keep the overnight low air temps in the mid 40’s.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge peaked around 51 degrees yesterday and looks to be in great shape for nymphing and some stonefly activity.  Cannonsville Reservoir is 94.5% capacity and the WB at Walton is flowing in at 1420 cfs.
