Delaware River Report / Conditions April 20, 2019

Apr 20, 2019 Comments Off by

We got lucky and received less rain than originally forecasted.  We did get some rain though and the rivers are up and off color this morning.  The flows have peaked and are already dropping.  We may see another bump later in the day as the reservoir spills increase but it shouldn’t be much.  There’s not much rain left in the forecast over the next few days.  Just a few light showers here and there so we should be fishing the West Branch again tomorrow.  The water temps are great for April so we should see some great fishing once the flows drop to a comfortable level for the fish to rise.  Lucky.  There are a few thunderstorms moving around the area but so far it looks like the storms are staying East of us.
