Thinking they shut it down in anticipation of big rain amounts. Now that the rain hasn't materialized in the amount predicted, the release is back up to 500+.

Looking at the graph, you'll notice the ramping down of flows. LMAO

Big meeting today and hope FUDR has a good email to follow up the meeting.

Was thinking about hitting the Upper D for wade fishing tomorrow. Just need my duckies for wadin'

Here is today's report fro the Delaware River Club:

DELAWARE RIVER REPORT / CONDITIONS OCTOBER 9, 2017


The release from Cannonsville is back up to 535 cfs this morning. The release was dropped below 2oo cfs yesterday due to either total incompetence or total disregard of the downstream users. It almost looks like they thought the release from Rio Reservoir combined with the forecasted rain would meet the Montague Flow Target and they could save a few gallons of water in Cannonsville. Lake Wallenpaupack does not seem to be a player in this one. Add in the precipitous drop in release with no thought of ramping it down gradually and we’re going with a mix of 20% incompetence and 80% disregard for the downstream users. These situations are so unnecessary it really feels mean spirited. Our reservoir system is still 3% above normal capacity for early October.

So 535 cfs is not too bad for today since it keeps the riverbed wet. We should see a bit more rain but the total amount in the forecast has been reduced to right around 1/4?. It looks like we have a bit of rain and clouds ahead of us this week. If DEP can control their instinct to shut it down every time there is a heavy dew we should have some good fishing ahead of us. Keep the olive box handy.
