Delaware River Report / Conditions August 13, 2014

Aug 13, 2014 Comments Off by

Most of the river system has seen little change from the overnight rains.  The flows bumped om most of the rivers but the amount is negligible.  The best news is that the water temperatures at Fish’s Eddy and Lordville are starting off lower this morning than they have over the last few days.  They are calling for a few more scattered showers today but nothing terrible.  The light rain and clouds should actually improve the fishing conditions.  The West Branch at Walton is climbing but is only 86 cfs. Cannonsville Reservoir is 88.4% capacity.  The Lower West Branch is clear so far this morning and looks top be in great shape.  I would expect the lower sections of the river to rise slowly today.  If we get hit with a localized storm that changes the conditions we’ll add an additional update here.  We should see our normal sulphurs and summer stenos, plus those rainy day olives in #18 -24.
