Delaware River Report / Conditions August 25, 2018

Aug 25, 2018 Comments Off by

The release from Cannonsville is 1,500 cfs with 85 cfs still spilling over the top of the dam.  The flows are still dropping throughout the system.  There is no real rain in the forecast so we should see all of the rivers continue to drop over the next few days.  The releases will likely remain high for a while to drop the reservoir levels.  A lot of people are throwing streamers but we’re seeing more fish rise as the water drops.  Mostly blue wing olives with a few isonychias mixed in.  Today looks like another day in the 70’s with some sun and clouds mixed.  Winds will stay under 10 mph from the South.
