Delaware River Report / Conditions April 12, 2012

Holy *&%@! A day with moderate wind! Ok, so the sleet / rain / snow / hail made it interesting, but the fish were up and at it all day long, on the East, West, and Main. Hendricksons were teh order of the day, and folks did real well. For many, it was the first time that they saw larger fish up and taking dries. Today is slotted to be clearer, with a possibility of rain later in the afternoon. Winds will be up again, but not as ferocious as they have been. Here’s hoping for a spinner fall once I close the office!
