Delaware River Report / Conditions October 29, 2012

Oct 29, 2012 Comments Off by

Well, it was another crappy(oops! I mean tough, yeah, that’s the more PC word) day out there yesterday, despite some great conditions. Very few bugs on the water, and even fewer fish looking up to take them – chubs included. Not sure if they are anticipating the oncoming storm or not. Regardless, today is obviously NOT the day to be on the water. We have predicted gusts in the 60s today once we hit late afternoon, and they are likely to continue well into Halloween and beyond. Surprisingly, the rain in the forecast keeps dropping in amount that we’ll see over the next few days, so I doubt the rivers will flood dramatically. Regardless, I’ll batten down the hatches, and get the Ramen noodles ready for the inevitable power outage to come. If we still have cell service, I will post a small update tomorrow to let you know how we and the rivers fared. Be careful, and be safe!
