Delaware River Report / Conditions April 24, 2014

Apr 24, 2014 Comments Off by

The wind was not kind yesterday.  Streamers worked if you could stick with it and not be frustrated by the weather.  A few one time risers were spotted but the bugs were being blown so fast and so far there wasn’t much of an opportunity for the fish to even see them.  Today’s high is 54 degrees with more wind, but significantly less than yesterday.  Streamers will still be your best bet but you may find a few fish rising in protected areas.  The rivers are dropping and if we don’t have any more rain the reservoirs should stop spilling soon.  Cannonsville is 100.7% capacity and Pepacton is 100.2% capacity.
