Delaware River Report / Conditions July 10, 2017

The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 699 cfs this morning.  Water temperatures are in good shape on the entire West Branch and Upper East Branch.  There were some fish rising in yesterday’s sun but things picked up after the clouds rolled in and the sund dropped a bit in the evening.  Sulphurs and little olives were the main bugs with a few isonychias and cahills here and there.  Nymphing deeper drop offs has been productive during the day.  Today looks like another good day on the water with sun early changing to some clouds in the afternoon.  We may see a very brief, light rain shower later but it shouldn’t change the flows.


699 cfs is still good for wading and floating.  and it's great for the river!
