Delaware River Report: May 13, 2022

The release from Cannonsville remains 400 cfs. The flow at Hale Eddy is 487 cfs. Yesterday the hatches came later in the afternoon followed by spinners in the evening. That makes sense on those bright sunny days. Today looks a little better with some cloud cover and maybe a light non consequential rain shower. The air temp will hit 78 degrees with wind from the south 5 – 10 mph. Hendricksons are still making up the bulk of the bugs but there are March Browns showing. Some caddis were around in the afternoon. The water temps are creeping up which should push the hatches.
