Delaware River Report / Conditions May 5, 2014

Well that was a strong wind yesterday.  There were decent hatch es of blue quills and hendricksons on most of the system yesterday but the wind made fishing tough.  Fish were caught but a lot of time was spent watching bugs float by uneaten.  The hatching should continue today with less wind relatively speaking.  winds in the low teens and gusts to 20 which should be manageable.  The fish should be eating in wind protected areas.  The river temps are hitting the magic number of 50 degrees.
