Delaware River Report / Conditions April 11, 2018

Apr 11, 2018 Comments Off by

The flows are dropping throughout the system as the runoff subsides.  The release from Cannonsville is still 1,499 cfs but the spill has dropped to 248 cfs this morning.  There’s not a lot of rain in the forecast through the weekend so the rivers should be in good shape.  We’ll see around 1/4″ fall tomorrow and maybe the same amount on Sunday.  The air temperature will be in the low 40’s today but will climb until we peak close to 70 on Saturday.  It’s really shaping up to be a beautiful weekend on the water after a really long winter.  The lower water will help the sun warm it and hopefully push a few olives along with the stoneflies.  Nymphing should be better now with more structure visible.  Streamer fishing has been the go to method to find the fish.  We’ve had fish on just about all the colors so play around and switch it up until you start getting eats.
