Delaware River Report / Conditions May 17, 2014

May 17, 2014 Comments Off by


So we had some rain yesterday.  A lot of rain.  The wall of water has started to come over Cannonsville so even though Hale Eddy is dropping this morning it will rise later today.  Stilesville is still rising from the spill.  The color is okay in Stilesville.  The color on the lower WB is manageable for fish to eat streamers but not pretty.  The lower EB and MS are chocolate this morning.  As you move below the USGS gages figure the water is higher due to the feeder creeks coming in pushing a lot of water.  Wading is definitely not an option today.  The rivers should crest and begin to clear sometime today.  Most people that fished yesterday just got wet.
