Delaware River Report / Conditions October 11, 2020

The release from Cannonsville has been dropped.  The recording says the release is 300 cfs but the gauge at Stilesville shows 232 cfs.  NYC DEP is counting on releases from other dams and runoff from the rain coming to meet downstream flow targets.  The flow at Hale Eddy will drop over the next few hours.  We’ll hit 63 degrees today with wind 5 mph from the North.  A single digit wind forecast.  We should get some rain overnight with more coming tomorrow.  Tomorrow’s total should be around 1/2″.  Everything is pretty dry right now so a lot of it should soak right into the ground.  Falling water is usually good for dry fly action so the olives should come this afternoon.  Caddis are still all over the bushes and a few isonychias are around.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The cloudiness will increase if they raise the release.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
