The release from Cannonsville Reservoir is 696 cfs this morning. This leaves the West Branch is decent shape for both floating and wading. The Mainstem will rise a little this mornign but will also remain good for wading and floating. The East Branch temperatures are decent this morning. We had a little more rain come down over night but not enough to bring up the flow. It is in decent shape for wading and we have been hearing some reports of fish being landed on the lower stretches. We have another cloudy day ahead of us but the chance of any significant rain is very slim. Wind gusts should peak around 6 mph. Wet flies and caddis pupa have been working for the nymphers while small dark streamers are taking some fish. We are seeing some isonychias in spots. They still seem a little spotty but some people are finding decent numbers of them. Most of the dry fly action has been on small olives in the afternoon.
