Delaware River Report / Conditions May 19, 2017

The release from Cannonsville is 251 cfs and there is 707 cfs still spilling over the top.  The West Branch is finally dropping back to decent wading levels.  There will still be spots that are high and moving quickly but there is a lot more wading water available than we’ve seen all season.  The entire system is looking good this morning with decent levels and water temperatures.  Water temps on the East side drainage have come up a bit but should settle down withe the cooler air temperatures and clouds in the forecast.  Caddis, hendricksons, and march browns are being spotted.  Definitely stay late looking for spinners and keep an eye out for the odd mid-day spinner falls.
