Delaware River Report / Conditions April 5, 2014

We wanted a cool wet April and that is what we had yesterday- bone chilling and damp.  Today should be 45 degrees, partly sunny with brief showers.  The last of the runoff and rain is keeping the rivers filled and the Cannonsville level is still slowly rising.  Those are tow encouraging signs for this season.  The water temps are still low for any meaningful dryfly activity so you best opportunities will come from fishing smaller streamers slowly and nymphing above some of the feeder creeks.  The sun is popping out this morning and it looks like a nice early Spring day overall.
