    When will the WB stop spilling?

    Looks like there is still spillage and it is keeping the temps too high to stimulate the great Sulpher hatches. I am heading up this weekend and am hoping the spillage will be over to take advantage of the new high level of release of 325cfs.

    although the spillage is warmer than the release and is making things a little warmer upstream, the sulpher hatches and iso's down river have been great in the evening. I wouldn't worry too much about the bottom release fishing was as good as Ive seen it in some time over the past week with plenty of fish rising throughout the system. Im heading up today and will be up all week if you want a report on what areas have been good shoot me a pm

    The spill is minimal, but yesterday's water temps in the no-kill were around 60 degrees. If we don't get too much rain this week, the spill should be about over any day now. The sulphurs this weekend were not coming off in great numbers on the WB.

    Hi,

    Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service: Binghamton: West Branch Delaware River at Cannonsville Reservoir

    Here is the predicted level of Cannonsville Reservoir. This site is constantly updated.

    I agree that at least right now, do not worry about the spill, except if we get too much and wading is difficult.

    Sulphurs have been good, although the last couple of days the hatches and fishing have slowed throughout the system.

    Good luck and have fun!!

    Down here in Montague there's hardly any water and it's already over 70 degrees. Oh well...I guess that's good for you WB guys, it will probably keep the striper migration to a minimum.
