The rivers are dropping quickly and the water temperatures are climbing. Things are looking good for this coming week. The nights have been cool but the days have been beautiful. We are starting off with sunshine this morning but we may see some clouds move in and a light shower this afternoon. late tonight / tomorrow looks like the best chance of rain with around 1/4″ predicted. Wind gusts will be around 12 mph today so definitely manageable and very Delaware Spring like.
The rivers fished well yesterday with most fish landed on streamers but there are people finding fish eating dries here and there. That will improve over the next couple of days as the water temperatures climb. The Beaverkill system is still your best bet for wading.
