Delaware River Report / Conditions April 5, 2019

Apr 05, 2019 Comments Off by

Yesterday had a bit more wind than we originally saw in the forecast.  It started of nice in the morning but gusts had to be hitting 20 25 mph by the afternoon.  That made for another day of tough fishing.  Nymphs and streamers were definitively the best methods to try.  We did see some bugs in the air but they were moving by quickly.  We’re going to suffer again today with snow turning into rain before we break into a beautiful weekend. We should hit 56 degrees tomorrow and 61 degrees on Sunday.  The warmer air temps seem to settle in after today.  Keep an eye on the current flows.  Cannonsville is at 99% capacity and the inflow in Walton is 1,000 cfs.


We have all of our Hendrickson patterns back in stock.  They'll be here soon enough
