Delaware River Report / Conditions April 6, 2021

The release from Cannonsville has been cut back to 1,198 cfs.  Cannonsville Reservoir is at 99.7% so the spill has stopped.  The rivers are still dropping as the runoff subsides.  We’re right around 30 degrees this morning but should hit 60 with some sunshine this afternoon.  More wind from the North today at 10 – 15 mph.  Wunderground shows the wind dropping tomorrow.  That will be a huge help. Most of the fish are still being caught on streamers and nymphs.  There are some stoneflies and caddis on the water so keep your eyes open.

Air temps look great in the 10 day forecast.  We may see some rain towards the end ofthe weekend but chances are good that forecast will change.

What’s Hatching:
Early Black / Brown Stone – #14 – 16 – Taeniopteryx fasciiata, Brachytera sp.
Tiny Black Stonefly – #18 – Capniidae sp.
Little Black Caddis - #18 – 20 – Chimarra sp.
Blue Wing Olives – #16 – 18 – Baetis vagans
