Delaware River Report / Conditions September 5, 2014

The Cannonsville release is 438 cfs “until further notice”.  They had dropped it to 401 cfs yesterday afternoon so there is no way to tell when they will Yo Yo the release again.  On the positive side the entire system is wadeable and most sections are floatable.  We are facing a hot day so a little extra water in the river to keep the exposed rocks from heating up would be nice.  Fish with your thermometer on the Mainstem.  Looking at the temperature graphs I would advise against going to the lower East Branch and the Mainstem below Buckingham.  The Upper East Branch and West Branch should be fine.  The West Branch is starting off at 60 degrees under the 191 Bridge in Hancock.  Accuweather is calling fro rain over the weekend.  Most of it will soak into the ground but it will be a welcome relief for the system.  Small olives, Summer Stenos, and Isonychias should cover your needs out there.
