Delaware River Report / Conditions April 21, 2014

Apr 21, 2014 Comments Off by

Yesterday was a good day!  The water is beginning to warm up- looks like the West Branch peaked around 46 yesterday.  The streamer fishing improved along with the temperature.  White streamers seemed to be the ticket but I think anything presented in front of an aggressive fish would have been hit.  We had a lot of stoneflies on the water mixed with a few Blue Quills and Quill Gordons.  Surface activity was slow but is definitely improving.  I expect to see more heads this afternoon as the rivers fall and warm up.  Today looks like a great day with highs in the low 70’s and a little rain moving in tonight into tomorrow.
