Delaware River Report / Conditions April 28, 2019

Apr 28, 2019 Comments Off by

We had some decent rain, snow, and wind yesterday.  We also had bugs.   Most people who stuck it out went with streamer fishing but the dry fly fishing was a really nice surprise.  You needed the right combination of wind protection, bugs, and water slow enough for the fish to set up.  Overall we all would have bet on streamers.  It was cold overnight so the river temps are starting off a little colder this morning.  We have some rain in the forecast but should see less than 1/4″ total for the day.  Today will be a lot like yesterday with a cooler air temp and a cold night.  So, like yesterday, layer up with every fleece you have in your bag.  We start to warm back up tomorrow.
