Delaware River Report / Conditions August 27, 2018

Aug 27, 2018 Comments Off by

Yesterday was another day of sun and with a few clouds.  Streamer fishing picked up when the sun wasn’t on the water.  People found fish rising to isonychias, olives, and some flying ants.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,500 cfs. It looks like we have stopped spilling so the river should level out.  The feeder streams are still pushing some water but they are leveling out too.  Water temperatures look great throughout the system so there are lots of options.  People are wading the West Branch in spots and doing well.  There are some spots that you can wade at these levels.

We have a heat wave for the next few days but it should break on Thursday leading into a pleasant weekend.
