Delaware River Report: October 18, 2022

The air temp is starting off at 32 degrees this morning so it will take a while to warm up today. We have a brief but heavy rain yesterday afternoon that seemed like we’d get some water out of but it ended up being negligible. The eastern drainage went up about 40 cfs and the West Branch didn’t budge. The cloud cover helped. We did see the olives in the afternoon and some fish we’re on them. We’ll have sun this morning with a few clouds coming inn during the afternoon. High of 51 degree with wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.
