Delaware River Report / Conditions September 25, 2017

The release from Cannonsville has been bumped up this morning to 1,122 cfs. The West Branch remains off-color,  if you are wading out there be careful. The Main stem is a better wade option since there is no additional flow coming down the East Branch. The East Branch is clear but warming up with all the hot, sunny days we’ve been having. Today looks like a carbon copy of yesterday with bright sun once the fog burns off. We’re hoping that the weather guys are right and that cooler, more fall-like temperatures will return later this week. Look for fish in the shade and carry those small olives and some Iso spinners with you.
