Delaware River Report / Conditions May 18, 2014

May 18, 2014 Comments Off by

The rivers have settled and are slowly dropping back.  We are clearing slightly but it will take a while to get back to where we were and none of the rivers are currently wadeable.  There were fish rising sporadically in some of the long flat pools yesterday but the majority of the fishing is big streamers right now.  The system should improve during the week and begin to fish better as the water falls and clears.
