Delaware River Report / Conditions April 11, 2019

Apr 11, 2019 No Comments by

Yesterday was a tough one out there.  The air temp hovered in the low 40’s with only a brief period of sun in the late afternoon.  The wind added to the chill.  There were some olives out and a few people had dry fly shots but overall it was a streamer / nymph day.  Things are improving beginning today.  We’ll see warmer air temps and may even see 70 degrees on Saturday.  We have some weekend rain in the forecast but the amounts change every time we check.  So far it looks like they are reducing the amount expected.


Water temps should improve along with the fishing over the next couple of days
