Delaware River Report / Conditions October 7, 2019

We woke up to a steady rain.  Not heavy but steady.  Wunderground is calling for just under 3/4″ of rain spread out over the entire day.  The release from Cannonsville has been cut back to 300 cfs.  The cut is probably in anticipation of the runoff adding enough water to the system to meet the downstream flow targets.  It looks like the freestone streams are just leveling off and beginning to rise on the graphs.  Wind should stay under 10 mph from the North today.  The air temp will hit 60 degrees.  It took a while for things to get going yesterday but overall most people found success.  It was nymphing and streamer fishing early with some isonychias and olives coming later on some river sections.  Overcast skies and falling water levels always seems to be a good combination.
