Delaware River Report / Conditions October 16, 2020

Oct 16, 2020 Comments Off by

The release from Cannonsville has been dropped slightly and the flow at Stilesville is 325 cfs.  The flow at Hale Eddy is dropping slowly but should settle by mid morning.  We’re in for quite a change in weather today with the air temp reaching 51 degrees.  We’ll have some light rain with wind 6  – 9 mph from the North.  That’s still pretty good for mid October.  The rain should only amount to .04″ so no issues there.  It looks like a good olive day.  Some people are seeing some of the caddis hit the water too so definitely have those ready.

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.
