Delaware River Report / Conditions April 22, 2019

Apr 22, 2019 Comments Off by

The Beaverkill flow is falling the fastest.  The East and West Branches are falling slowly due to the reservoirs spilling.  We had some rain yesterday that seemed to come out of no where.  It was brief but heavy but didn’t seem to affect the West Branch.  It is clear enough to fish and people are out there.  Wading is not an option but floating is fine.  Streamers are still our best bet to start off but there are enough bugs to get the fish looking up if you find slow enough water.  We’re start off with a cloudy sky this morning but we should see some sunshine in the afternoon.  The next three days look dry so we should see the rivers flows continue to drop.
