Delaware River Report / Conditions October 2, 2014

The release from Cannonsville has been dropped back to 947 cfs this morning “until further notice.”  We did have some light rain overnight but so far it’s soaked into the ground.  Today looks like a great day for fishing with clouds, some additional light rain possible, and light winds.  We had decent olive hatches yesterday mixed with a few Isonychias and caddis.  The wind gusts were very brief and infrequent which helped keep the fish working.  The cool nights have helped the rivers keep their temperatures throughout the system.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 54 degrees this morning.


We still have some decent sized mayflies on the river
