Delaware River Report / Conditions July 15, 2021

It looks like the release from Cannonsville Reservoir was increased to around 725 cfs.  This was probably done to help mitigate any potential spill since the reservoir levels are still climbing.  So keep in mind if you’re wading the Stilesville area it will be higher than it’s been in a while.  The flows are slowly dropping on the rest of the system.  the color is fine on the lower West Branch and definitely fishable.  Most of the rain missed us yesterday.  Surprisingly there is no rain in today’s forecast.  We’ll see sunshine and 85 degrees with wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.  Tomorrow we’re back to the normal potential afternoon thunderstorms.

The river cleanup is back for the 5th year.  August 14th.
