Delaware River Report / Conditions April 29, 2013

It was definitely a crazy day out there on the river yesterday. Without a doubt, it was the busiest I have seen it in my 10+ years around here. Although there were a ton of boats and waders, the fishing was still pretty dang good – folks found good pods of rising fish throughout the system. It was tough at times, but definitely not impossible! Today we’re expecting a hint of rain, with clouds throughout. Needless to say perfect BWO weather! We’ll see what materializes, but you’ll definitely find me out there after the shop closes at 6!
