Delaware River Report / Conditions September 17, 2021

Sep 17, 2021 Comments Off by

The rivers are still running high but are beginning to drop slowly.  The West Branch will drop a bit but will stay high with a release around 1,400 cfs from Cannonsville.  The larger release is adding some color to the river but it is still fishable.  Wading is not recommended.  We found fish rising yesterday but most fish were landed on nymphs and streamers.The Beaverkill / Willowemoc will offer the first wadeable water.  Today should be a mix of clouds and sun again with wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.
