Delaware River Report: May 14, 2022

The release from Cannonsville remains 400 cfs. Yesterday was a mix of xlouds and sunshine. There was some fishing early in the day as the apple caddis work their way up the system. Hendricksons are still here with some blue quill spinners hanging on. March browns are also moving up river as the water temps increase. Today will be warm but we should have good cloud cover. The air temp will hit 78 degrees with wind 5 – 10 mph from the South. We may see some thunderstorms in the afternoon but any rainfall looks insignificant.
