Delaware River Report / Conditions October 27, 2013

I couldn’t hear the reports over all the wind out on the water yesterday. With cold temps, the 20+ gusts definitely made for a brutal, chilly day, with just sporadic insect activity to boot. Those throwing streamers fared better, but not much, as if the fish decided to hide from the wind as well. Today we are looking at much more reasonable weather wind-wise, and with partly cloudy skies we should see a return of the bugs and the fish up and eating them. We’ll still be in the low 50s temp wise, so be sure to pack a fleece or two!
