Delaware River Report / Conditions October 4, 2014

We woke to the sound of steady rain this morning.  It’s been a long time.  Accuweather is calling for cooler temps and around a 1/2″ of rain today.  I would expect most of the rain to soak into the ground and it appears that they are dropping the release on the West Branch assuming the rain will help satisfy the downriver flow targets.  According to the 7 AM recording the release from Cannonsville is 591 cfs this morning.  The flow at Stilesville is 577 cfs so who really knows for sure. The water temps remain decent with 55 degrees on the West Branch under the 191 Bridge. They are calling for a decent amount of wind.  If the forecast is correct look for protected areas- besides the wind this looks like a great fishing day.   Yesterday was mostly a blue winged olive day with some dark caddis in the evening.
