Delaware River Report / Conditions September 2, 2019

The release from Cannonsville has been cut back to 450 cfs according to the recording.  The Stilesville gauge show 396 cfs..  It looks like they are counting on the rain to make up the flow difference.  We’ve had some light steady rain so far this morning but nothing significant.  The forecasted amount of rain today has been reduced to 1/2″ .  This could turn out to be a good day on the water rather than a washout.  High of 73 degrees with wind 5 -10 from the South.  Yesterday fished well after the evening rain with really good olives, some isonychias, and even a few cahills showing.  There were a lot of fish rising- a lot of small fish but if you were patient or lucky there were some good fish eating on top too.
