Delaware River Report / Conditions August 3, 2019

The release from Cannonsville was increased yesterday afternoon and the flow at Stilesville is 725 cfs this morning.  The West Branch is still at a good level for wading and floating.  We had a few thunderstorms slide North and South of us yesterday but we stayed dry with mostly sunshine.  It did sections of the West Branch but missed us here on the lower end.  Today looks better with some clouds already moving in.  We should see a few storms in the afternoon with a total rainfall of 1/10th”.  We should be around 80 degrees with wind from the South 5 – 10 mph.  You may find some fish rising to tricos and olives before the fog burns off the water.  Sulphurs, olives, and isonychias are still the main hatches.
