Delaware River Report / Conditions April 21, 2017

Apr 21, 2017 Comments Off by

We were hit with a couple of decent storms overnight.  The rivers are up this morning.  We have a lot of color in the West Branch but it looks fishable with streamers.  The West should begin to clear up by this evening.  Some of the feeder creeks have color while others look fine.   We may see a little additional rain today but it shouldn’t amount to more than a sprinkle.  The weather looks clear until Tuesday.  Wading is not an option but boating is fine if you’re confident rowing the higher flows.    The feeder creeks should peak and begin to drop today.  We may see the spill increase.  This could turn out to be a decent streamer day and weekend.  Hopefully we see a larger flush of alewives coming over Cannonsville today as the reservoir inflow increases.
