Delaware River Report / Conditions April 10, 2017

Apr 10, 2017 Comments Off by

The rivers are dropping back quickly but they are still high and cold.  The Beaverkill looks like it will be the first to offer any wade opportunities.  There is a little rain in the forecast beginning tomorrow but the predicted amounts aren’t large.  We may see 1/4″ tomorrow but it’s only listed as a 30% chance right now.  Today looks beautiful with sunshine, air temperatures in the 70’s, with a few wind gusts around 11 mph.  Floating is still your best option.  There are alewives in the system from the reservoir spills but the lower water temperatures are keeping the fish a little sluggish.  The temps are coming up each day so activity should improve.

Mainstem water temperatures are looking better each day
