Delaware River Report / Conditions August 20, 2018

Aug 20, 2018 Comments Off by

Both Cannonsville and Pepacton Reservoirs are spilling.  The Cannonsville spill is hot at Stilesville until it mixes with the colder release and runoff and cools down to 61 degrees at Hale Eddy.  The river is clearing up and there is no rain in the forecast today.  We do have 1/4″ in the forecast tomorrow but the rest of the week looks clear.

Give it a few days for the runoff and spill to subside.  If you do come today check the water temps, be in a boat, and make sure whoever is rowing knows what they’re doing.
