Delaware River Report / Conditions April 20, 2017

Apr 20, 2017 Comments Off by

The rain moved through yesterday and the rivers bumped a little overnight. We had some wind in the morning but by late afternoon it calmed down. We’re in great shape this morning and the West Branch is clear.  Air temperatures should be in the low 60’s with some good cloud cover.  Winds are negligible staying under 10 mph.  We may see some showers but it looks like the potential is greatest after dark.  Streamers and nymphs have been producing well.  Today looks like a great dryfly day with the combination of low wind and cloud cover.  We’ve been seeing a mix of blue quills, quill gordons, olives, and stoneflies (plus the oddball hendrickson in some sections).
