Delaware River Report / Conditions April 28, 2014

Blue Quills and Quill Gordons are still hatching in decent numbers on the system.  On colder days the window is only a couple of hours but it’s enough to get the fish looking up.  There are a few Hendricksons mixed inbut the main hatch has not stated yet.  Add in the stoneflies and the chimarra caddis and you get the bug soup that makes fishing the Delaware so much fun.  Today is shaping up to be a great fishing day- high of 61 degrees, sun in the morning with clouds rolling in during the evening.  No wind!  After what we’ve seen lately 5 mph will seem like nothing.  The system is falling back into levels comfortable for wading and floating.  Cannonsville is at 99.8% with a release of 701 cfs.
