Delaware River Report / Conditions October 8, 2014

Those who braved the wind yesterday found the olives and the fish eating them in between gusts.  We are still seeing good numbers of olive #18 -24 plus a few Isonychias on the water.  The release from Cannonsville is 1086 cfs until further notice.  It looks like last nights rain offered no relief for the Beaverkill and East Branch so the West Branch and Mainstem remain the better rivers to fish.  We are looking at id 60’s today with some wind moving in during the afternoon.  We may have a very light passing shower and then sun.  It looks like a repeat of yesterday.  The West Branch temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 56 degrees this morning.
