Delaware River Report / Conditions September 11, 2018

Sep 11, 2018 Comments Off by

The rivers are high and off color this morning but the flows are dropping quickly.  The rain was steady all day but we never had a real heavy downpour. The West will be back in good shape in a day or two.  If you get above the feeders on the West Branch Stilesville should offer some clear water at 1,100 cfs.  Stay above Oquaga Creek up there.   The flow at Hale Eddy peaked around 3,400 cfs last night and has already dropped back to 2,160 cfs this morning.  There is no real precipitation in the forecast today so the rivers should continue to drop and clear.
