Delaware River Report / Conditions April 25, 2019

There were some fish rising yesterday but the wind didn’t do us any favors.   Streamers were the best bet along with nymphing slow edges.  Wading is still not an option on the big rivers but the Beaverkill is getting low enough that it’s a possibility in spots.  We’d like to see it drop a couple hundred cfs more to come into it’s own.  Today looks like a great fay to be on the water.  We already have some sunshine and the air temp will be 10 degrees warmer than yesterday peaking around 65.  The real treat is the wind should only be 5 – 10 mph.  We’re going to get 1/4″ of rain overnight but that shouldn’t start until after dark.  There is some rain coming tomorrow but the precipitation totals change every time we look.  Hopefully they are scattered storms that hit a few miles away from us.
