Delaware River Report / Conditions April 3, 2021

Apr 03, 2021 No Comments by

The thermometer is showing 16 degrees this morning but we should see it hit 50 by the afternoon.  We’ll see some sunshine and wind 5 – 10 mph from the North.  Even the wind will be better today.  The 10 day forecast still looks good with warmer days and cool nights.  The runoff is subsiding so most of the river flows are dropping.  The flow is pretty steady at Stilesville with a release of 1,499 cfs.  Cannonsville is spilling 19 cfs.  It will take a while for everything to warm up this afternoon so streamers and nymphs will be your best bets.  There stoneflies and caddis should be active by mid day so keep a dry fly rod handy just in case.


Tim Glynn with a nice one from last week.  He'll be back on it this week with the warmer weather
