Delaware River Report / Conditions October 4, 2016

Posted on October 04 2016

This morning’s release from Cannonsville has been cut back to 585 cfs.  Yesterday we had a bit more sun than expected but the clouds dd move in and out during the day.  Streamers and wet flies seemed to be the best bet but some people were able to find some fish eating on top.  We did see some spinners in the air in the evening but they didn’t hit the water until well after dark.  Today’s weather should be similar to yesterday- mostly overcast with little or no precipitation.  Wind gusts should be a bit lower peaking around 5 mph in the afternoon.
