Delaware River Report / Conditions May 15, 2020

May 15, 2020 Comments Off by

Both Cannonsville and Pepacton have stopped spilling.  The water levels are starting off this morning pretty close to yesterday’s numbers.  The Beaverkill is up slightly form the rain last night.   Yesterday was a tough day despite the great looking conditions.  Bugs still hatched and people landed fish so overall it was decent.  It seemed to take a while to get going.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and caddis are still making up most of the food out there.  Today is going to be warmer with a chance of some showers.  The cloud cover and light wind should help the fishing.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,083 cfs.
