Update

They are currently testing some safety equipment at Cannonsville Dam so the release has been cut.  Once the testing is over this afternoon the release will be increased back to normal.  We still have runoff pushing through the system so there is water in the river and everything will be fine.    We were hit with some good thunderstorms yesterday evening with high winds and brief heavy rains.  The rivers are clear this morning and looking good.  The rain didn’t seem to last long enough to muddy anything up.  Today looks nice with high air temperatures approaching 60 with a mix of sun and clouds.  We may have some wind gusts approach 15 mph but that seems pretty normal for April weather on the Delaware and shouldn’t affect the fish.  The wind will be a pleasant 6 mph when it isn’t gusting.
