Default Delaware Water Gap Fishing Report

Fished the Delaware River 2 miles upstream from the Water Gap yesterday. Launched from Smithfield Beach boat ramp. Target location - Tock's island upstream to Smithfield Split. Water temps 40F - 43F degrees.

Water conditions: crystal clear, no vegetation, low to no structure. The river is low for this time of the year. I attribute it to a winter of low precipitation, so there is no snow melt and there was no true freeze. The river never even froze this year. If you don't have a jet stay off the river. You'll loose a prop as soon as you pass an island.

A few other boats on this stretch were reporting a few catches of walleye. We ran Rapala's, salted Bleeding Tubes and a few spinners. Had 2 hits all day but never hooked them. Warm weather has brought out some moths and caddis flies. I've never seen the a hatch this early.

No stripers were spotted. Look for them downstream between Shawnee Island downstream to Portland. Beware - the Kitatinny Boat Launch is NOT open nor accessible.

One year later report. Same area from shore.
Ice flows have broken up.
Water fairly clear and not raging despite the melting snow. Snowstorm this weekend.
Last few days near 70. Tonight 19 degrees and windy with driving snow.
Walleye caught near Eshback. Have to wait for next week to try again.
