Delaware River Report / Conditions August 31, 2014

Aug 31, 2014 Comments Off by

It’s hard to believe it’s the last day of August and the West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is starting off at 54 degrees this morning.  The weather this summer has been incredible for the fishery.  The release from Cannonsville is 823 cfs this morning and looks level on the graph.  I would expect NY to drop the release sometime late tonight or tomorrow if there are plans to run water out of Lake Wallenpaupack on Tuesday.  Fishing was tough yesterday with fewer olives than normal.  Hopefully that was a result of the rising water and stalling water temperatures caused by the increased release.  Accuweather is calling for clouds, early evening rain, and low winds.  On paper today looks like a great day to be on the water.
