Delaware River Report / Conditions April 29, 2014

We all thought the river would fish well yesterday.  We were right.  Everyone seemed to find at least some fish ea  ting a mix of Blue Quills, Quill gordons, and the first few Hendricksons.  Dry fly action was decent in the afternoon while nymphing paid off throughout the day.  Starting today the temperatures drop and the wind comes back.  Thursday we get back to “normal” and the weekend looks like it will fish.
