UPDATE Delaware River Report / Conditions August 18, 2018

Aug 18, 2018 Comments Off by

We were hit with more storms this morning.  Stilesville only jumped to 1,530 cfs but Hale is at 3,380 cfs and climbing.  The lower West is off color.

We were hit with some good storms overnight.  The flows have jumped on most of the system below the feeder creeks.  The flow at Stilesville is level at 1,510 cfs.  The flows are dropping this morning as the runoff subsides.  We may see some additional rain this morning.  The forecast shows 50% of some scattered storms coming through around 11 am.  If all the storms miss us through noon we should be in the clear. The water is moving throughout the system so be careful if you fish today.  The West Branch at Stilesville is 1,510 cfs.  Most of the flow is coming from the feeder streams.  We are off color with the runoff.  Hopefully the rest of the rain misses us and we’ll begin to drop and begin to clear this afternoon.
