Delaware River Report / Conditions April 12, 2014

Yesterday afternoon’s rain brought more needed water into the system.  The rivers came up slightly overnight and Cannonsviile is still rising slowly (97.9% capacity this morning)  The WB  release continues to be 1499 cfs.  Accuweather is calling for 65 degrees today, which is going to feel like summer!  We should have decent stonefly activity this afternoon, we’re just hoping the water temps warm up enough to energize the fish.  Otherwise stick with small streamers fished slow and nymphs- The program of the spring so far.
