Delaware River Report / Conditions October 23, 2017

The release from Cannonsville has been reduced to  487 cfs and will drop a bit more this morning.  They are likely thinking the rain tonight and tomorrow will add enough water to help meet the Montague Flow Target.  Wunderground has the probability of rain as 100% tomorrow.  That’s a pretty gutsy forecast around here.  Along with the front bringing the rain we will have some wind.  There are enough leaves left along the river that there should be some protected areas.  Nymphing and streamers both produced a few fish over the weekend.  The dry fly fish have been moving around a lot eating tiny olives.

The Cannonsville Release Schedule for today:
7 Am – 487 cfs
8 Am – 410 cfs
10 Am – 333 cfs until further notice
