Upper Delaware River Report — July 10, 2010

At some point during the night, we finally got the rain that the weather man told us was coming.  Air temperatures are cooler this morning and will be throughout the day, with a high of only 75 degrees expected for today.  We will see overcast skies for most of the day, with a very good chance of rain as well.  Unfortunately, the cold-water release rate from Cannonsville is down to 325 this morning, which will make the river difficult to float.  Like usual, water temperatures on the Upper West will remain cool, so that will be the place to be during the day.  Look for Olives, Sulphurs, Isos and Caddis out on the water.  If you make it out early enough in the morning, you could get some Tricos in the mix.
