Delaware River Report / Conditions October 15, 2020

Oct 15, 2020 Comments Off by

The release from Cannonsville has been cut again and the flow at Stilesville is 365 cfs early this morning.  The release recording lists the release at 500 cfs.  Obviously that is incorrect again or they did a horrible job fixing the Stilesville gauge when the release was zero last week.  Hale Eddy is still over 600 cfs at 6:30 am but will drop throughout the morning.  We may see a little rain tomorrow but they are probably counting on releases from down river to meet flow targets.  We’ll be 71 degrees today with mostly sun.  There should be decent olives as the water drops.  Caddis are still all over the bushes and hitting the water occasionally giving us some shots.  Isonychias have been hit or miss but seem to be picking up.  Tomorrow we’ll see some clouds and a little rain as a front pushes through. We’ll cool down a bit to 51 degrees too.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The higher the release the more color will be in the river.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
