Delaware River Report / Conditions October 8, 2017

Oct 08, 2017 Comments Off by

When we walked outside this morning rain was actually falling.  It’s been a while.  We actually have quite a bit of rain in the forecast over the next few days.  The powers that be feel the runoff will be enough to meet the flow target in Montague so the release from Cannonsville has been decreased to 309 cfs.  Hopefully the forecast is correct since a lot of the initial rain will soak into the ground.  So things look good this morning.  Dropping water, overcast sky, intermittent light rain, and decent water temps sound real good.  We’re still seeing decent olives and caddis with a few isonychias and hebes on the water.  It feels like a fishing day.  Go fishing
