Delaware River Report / Conditions October 25, 2020

The release from Cannonsville has been dropped slightly and the flow at Stilesville is 888 cfs this morning.  Not much of a change.  The air temp is in the low 30’s this morning and will only reach the mid 50’s today.  We’re finally back to Fall weather.  Unlike yesterday wind shouldn’t be a factor at 2 mph from the East.  Gusts to 8 mph will feel like nothing after yesterday.  The cold night has dropped the water temps so it will take some time to warm up today.  We should see olives with a few isonychias hatching in the afternoon.

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.
