Delaware River Report / Conditions May 8, 2018

The fish were looking up yesterday.  It sounded like most people found fish eating hendricksons or apple caddis off the surface.  Last night we heard the reports we’ve been expecting every day for the last two weeks.  You still need to look for the warmer water temps but the fish are finally happy.  Finally.  We’re starting off with a little more sun today but the air temperature should be about the same as yesterday.  We may get an afternoon shower with a .01″ of accumulation.  That pretty much just gives us cloud cover.  Wind will be 5 mph out of the south.  Today looks really good.

We could have skipped the written report today and just filled it with yesterdays fish pictures.  Finally.
