Delaware River Report / Conditions April 15, 2018

Apr 15, 2018 Comments Off by

Yesterday really did feel like Summer.  It was t shirt weather by late afternoon.  We’re hearing mixed reports but most people found some bugs.  Fish eating them seemed to be a little harder to find.  That’s not too uncommon in the beginning of the season.  Most people seemed to be sticking with streamers.  We went from Summer right back to early Spring this morning.  Air temps will be lower for the next few days.  We may see a few showers and even some freezing rain so be careful on the roads up here.   Despite the cooler night the water temps are up a little from yesterday morning.  The Beaverkill and lower East Branch flows are up a little more but are beginning to drop back.  The Upper East is still flowing under 500 cfs at Harvard.
