Delaware River Report / Conditions April 24, 2019

Apr 24, 2019 Comments Off by

It felt like summer on the river yesterday.  Sunshine and warm temps were followed by a couple of unexpected brief showers in the evening.  The showers did not drop enough rain to bump the river flows and all the rivers are still dropping slowly this morning.  There are a lot of bugs out the and fish are rising. Things will definitely improve as the water levels drop.  Most people are fishing streamers early and then looking for risers in the long, slow pools in the afternoons.  It’s going to be cooler today with some wind.  Tomorrow the air temp jumps back up to the high 60’s.
