Delaware River Report / Conditions May 10, 2014

May 10, 2014 Comments Off by

Despite the weatherman being incorrect on his wind gust estimates the river fished very well yesterday.  Hendricksons, Blue Quills, Apple Caddis and Dark Brachys all brought fish to the net.  The hatching started mid afternoon and we still had fish picking junk up until dark. m It was a great classic Delaware day.  The rain early Friday morning did bring the rivers up and muddied the East.  The flows throughout the system are dropping and the WB looks great this morning.   The weather today looks the same with a little more wind, and sun.
