Before you go check the flow.

Posted on August 31 2019

Yesterday the release from Cannonsville Reservoir was bumped up to almost 1000 CFS before being lowered to 700. Why? The river has been below the minimum flow requirement at the Montague monitoring station for the past few days and apparently the river master has called for the release increase to meet the minimum flow requirement. There has been no power generation from Wallenpaupack during that period and I don't know if they have maxed out their drawdown or if the shutdown is short term in nature.

In any event you can expect increased turbidity in the WB and BR during periods of high release. You should be mindful (if wading) that water levels can change without warning. Streamers are often effective in the colored water but I have had fish come up and refuse my dry fly when the water was so muddy I couldn't see my feet.

    Random question about fishing vests…Do you use (or know of) any specific brands that will keep my fly boxes dry considering Iā€™m not 6ā€™ tall. Thanks and happy writing. I have learned a lot from you and shook my head in agreement on many of your posts.
