Delaware River Report / Conditions April 11, 2014

Apr 11, 2014 Comments Off by

Yesterday was the nicest day we’ve seen since September.  We had some wind in the afternoon but the sky was blue and the sun was shining bright.  The warm weather brought the stoneflies out in force.  The fish still are keyed on them completely but that should change as the water temps come up and the bugs keep hatching.  If you looked hard enough yesterday you could find a fish eating off the top here and there but nothing to get crazy about.  The streamer action was okay and should improve over the weekend.  The river temps are starting a little higher this morning which should be good for the fishing.  Cannonsville is now at 97.9% capacity and the release continues at 1499 cfs.
