Delaware River Report / Conditions April 14, 2019

Apr 14, 2019 Comments Off by

Yesterday looked good on paper but it didn’t produce the great dry fly action we were hoping for.  People did find fish and it was actually decent for April 13th but we expected better after Friday’s fishing.  It could have been the increased flows or the periods of bright sunshine.  Today is a new day.  The weather forecast has been changing a lot but looks pretty good right now.  We’ll have some wind but most of the rain should fall later in the day. We should have decent clouds by mid morning.  The river flows are up again this morning so wading will be tough.  There were a few people out there yesterday wading the edges.  The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 1,499 cfs so be careful.  This could be a streamer / nymph day but there is a shot of finding some fish eating dries in the longer, slow pools.
