Delaware River Report / Conditions April 7, 2013

The witchdoctors “predicting” the weather did it again to us yesterday – the wind that was supposed to lay down by noon decided to extend its stay until about 4PM, well after the rivers started to cool again. Needless to say, the breezes kept any chance of dry fly fishing from occurring. That being said, we’re now looking at a day with temps near 60, with overcast skies and very little wind, a chance of some showers here and there. Perfect mayfly weather – now we just have to see if they decide to show up! The warmer overnight has us starting over 40 today, so I think there’s a good chance for some action as the day progresses.

Henry Marshall caught this THICK rainbow this weekend while fishing with our guide Kevan Smaracko. Glad to see the rainbows back in the river after spawn and looking that healthy! Photo: C/O Henry Marshall
