Delaware River Report / Conditions April 7, 2018

Apr 07, 2018 Comments Off by

We had a couple of inches of snow fall yesterday morning.  The afternoon turned out warmer and switched to some rain.  There is just a dusting left in the yard this morning.  Cannonsville is spilling 925 cfs with a release of 1,499 cfs.   We’re in for a couple of cooler days staying in the 30’s before we warm up a bit.  Nymphing the soft edges may turn up some fish but there is a lot of water flowing down the river.  Throwing streamers and covering water looking for the aggressive fish may be the better option.  Plus moving a lot will help keep you warmer.

Wunderground shows an improvement in the weather beginning Monday and lasting through the week.  If the pattern holds we should see air temperatures in the 50’s on Friday and Saturday.

 

Can't wait for the warmer weather beginning Monday!
