River Report / Conditions – August 12, 2018

August 12, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

If you’re in the area today, make sure you stop by the Spey Dayz event over at Fireman’s Park on the East Branch in Hancock. Casting and tying demonstrations from some of the best in the business. The West continues to recover from Thursday’s incident, and the rain we continue to receive. The East and West both saw significant spikes yesterday. Here at the Shehawken ramp, the smell of gas is still very strong and visibility from the rain is pretty poor. However, a few anglers did do streamer floats on the upper West and found some fish. For more information on the train derailment go to The release out of Cannonsville remains at 1500cfs. Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of 77*/65* with cloudy skies and 60% chance of rain showers throughout the day.
