Delaware River Report / Conditions April 9, 2017

Apr 09, 2017 Comments Off by

The rivers are slowly dropping back as the runoff subsides but are still high and cold.  Cannonsville, Pepacton, and Neversink Reservoirs are all spilling.  Yesterday was chilly and blustery until the sun popped out in the afternoon.  Today starts the run of warmer air temperatures for the rest of the week.  We should have sunshine and low 60’s today.  The water temperatures should warm up as the flows drop and we get some sunshine.  We have a little rain in this week’s forecast but the amounts seem negligible right now.  If the reports are correct there may be some wading opportunities on the Beaverkill later in the week.
