Delaware River Report / Conditions April 5, 2021

Apr 05, 2021 No Comments by

Yesterday turned out to be a nice one.  Good sunshine and the temp approached 60 degrees.  The wind was tough at times but manageable.  It was a nice day on the water.  Today looks a lot like yesterday with sun, warm air temp, and wind.  There were some bugs on the water but nymphing and streamers were still the best producers.  The dry fly fishing should pick up as the water levels drop and temps rise.  The air temps look great all the way into next week.
