Delaware River Report / Conditions April 3, 2013

Well needless to say, it was a COLD one out there yesterday. Absolutely frigid, and I didn’t even see a spin fisherman out and testing the waters. The high winds and cold kept the bugs off the water, and the water temps suppressed. The overnight lows also pushed those temps down, and we’re starting at about 35F in every part of the river. Today is looking just as chilly as yesterday, with just slightly less wind. If we make it to tomorrow, we should be in store for some excellent weather, and hopefully our first good long stretch of dry-fly fishing!
