Delaware River Report / Conditions May 13, 2018

May 13, 2018 Comments Off by

It rained steadily for most of the day yesterday.  We didn’t see a real heavy period, just a steady light rain.  All of the rivers seemed to come through it fine.  Some sections are up a few cfs and some are down a few cfs but basically they are starting off where they were yesterday morning.  Some sections saw decent numbers of olives during the rain.  Add your Pseudo box to your bag.    Today will be warmer with an air temperature in the mid 50’s.  The cloud cover should stick around all day with just a light shower or two in the evening.  It looks like a good day to be on the water.  If you’re fishing the lower Main or lower East Branch put a March Brown or two in your bag.  Nothing to really speak of yet but they can’t be far off on the warmer rivers.  This whole week looks good with intermittent rain, cloud cover, a little sun, and warmer air temps.
