Delaware River Report / Conditions September 16, 2014

The olives are still going in the evenings with some Isonychias and Cahills.  The hatching should be decent today if the light rain and clouds stick around through the afternoon.  So far the precipitation has been light and hasn’t changed the rivers too much.  Shame since the Beaverkill and East Branch could use some additional water for the Fall.   The clarity is decent on the lower West Branch and definitely fishable.  We should clear up a bit during the day and have a nice afternoon in the mid 60’s.  The current release from Cannonsville is 1,177 cfs until further notice.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 51 degrees this morning.  It’s beginning to feel like Fall with cool nights and mild days.
