Upper Delaware River Report–8/2/2010

Aug 02, 2010 Comments Off by

The Cannonsville Reservoir cut the release back down to 783 cfs this morning.  Stilesville is on its way down from 813 cfs this morning making the West Branch floatable from top to bottom. River temps have been steady around the low 50’s to upper 40’s. Last night we had Psuedos on the water until after dark on the lower west and there were good reports of bugs on the water on the upper west as well. Today’s forecast shows isolated thunderstorms with a 30% chance of rain.  The overcast skies today should make for great fishing whether you are fishing dry flies or streamers.  With the increased flows on the river, the terrestrial action should pick up along the banks.  Wade fishing is not out of the option; however there may be a few deep spots that carry heavy current so use caution if fishing by foot.
