Delaware River Report / Conditions October 2, 2018

Oct 02, 2018 Comments Off by

Today’s forecast has been all over the place.  It looks like scattered thunderstorms so it’s tough to tell if we will get hit or not.  There is currently nothing near us on the radar but that should change around noon.  If there is a dramatic change in river conditions we’ll do a mid afternoon update.  Otherwise the rivers are in very similar shape as yesterday.  The Beaverkill will offer a few wade opportunities at 1,000 cfs and check the Willowemoc and other small streams for more.  The Cannonsville release is still 1,499 cfs and Hale Eddy is running 2,440 cfs with the runoff.  It is still off color coming from the dam but it is clear enough to fish both dries and streamers.
