The release from Cannonsville is 1,028 cfs this morning. The flow release from Pepacton has been raised this morning and the flow at Downsville is 259 cfs. It’s nice to see a little more of the East Branch river bottom covered in water. Yesterday looked like it would fish well and it did. Streamers worked well and we did see some fish eating little olives mixed with isonychias. The cloud cover really helped the fishing. There are still a lot of caddis around but the fish still seem to be eating most of them under the surface. Things are looking good with at least partly cloudy weather in the forecast through Sunday morning. Thursday and Friday look like the best days for rain.
