Delaware River Report / Conditions October 14, 2014

Oct 14, 2014 Comments Off by

It seems that Cannonsville Reservoir is turning and we have warmer temps on the West Branch.  We are 59 degrees this morning from Stilesville all the way down to the 191 Bridge in Hancock.  The air temperatures have also climbed over the last 24 hours so the hatching should be a little earlier in the day than usual.  Some sections of river had olives beginning around 12 pm yesterday.  Accuweather is calling for air temps in the low 70s with some light sporadic showers today.  It sounds like a great olive and Isonychia day.  Keep an eye out for mid day spinner falls too.  We have seen the Steno and Psuedo spinners fall anytime between noon and 5 Pm.  The release hotline has not been updated but the flow at Stilesville is 1160 cfs this morning.
