Delaware River Report / Conditions April 14, 2013

Yesterday was certainly interesting out on the river. While there wasn’t a ton of insect activity, there were periods of pretty intense action on streamers, then followed by real lulls in the fish activity. There were some nice fish boated, including a few random Smallmouth Bass thrown in for good measure. If the forecast holds for today, we’re looking at some banner fishing most likely – the sun will heat up the water early, and if the winds stay down as predicted, the bugs should be out as well. The water levels are falling, but not precipitously, meaning we will still have some decent floating conditions for the next few days, but keep praying for more rain!
