Delaware River Report / Conditions – September 11, 2011

Sep 11, 2011 Comments Off by

The river dropped fairly significantly overnight, as the spill from Cannonsville has decreased, and water clarity is also getting better. While it is still WAY too high for wading, and also a bit high for floating even, the clarity has increased, and with the current rate of fall we should be in great shape for this next weekend! The bugs are still around, and we will see what the day brings.

Today is also a great day for reflection – personally, I was sitting in this exact spot in 2001 when I heard the news about the first plane hitting the WTC. Our thoughts will be with all of those who suffered loss that day, as well as our soldiers throughout the world continuing to protect our great country.
