Delaware River Report / Conditions August 31, 2019

Aug 31, 2019 Comments Off by

Yesterday afternoon the release from Cannonsville was bumped up to around 950 cfs.  It has been dropped back to around 679 cfs this morning so the West is back in good shape for both wading and floating.  The sudden increase did dislodge weeds and dirt making it tough/ almost impossible to fish the upper river yesterday evening.  That should flush out today with the lower release.  The river looks fine out front this morning.  We’re going to be cooler today with the high reaching 73 degrees.  Sunshine with a few clouds.  Wind will be 5 – 8 mph from the North.
