It looks like most of the rain either missed us or soaked into the ground. The rivers came us a little bit from the runoff but the releases have been increased to meet the downstream flow targets. The release from Cannonsville is 753 this morning and the East Branch flow at Downsville is 329 cfs. We are coming off a cold night so the ater temperatures have dropped back throughout the system. The air temperatures should climb into the 50’s by this afternoon. The wind did not miss us. The best bet yesterday was streamers fished slow and it looks like that will be the answer again today. Nymphing could pay off since the color of the rivers is pretty decent this morning. The forecast is calling for winds around 14 mph which is much better than the amount originally predicted. This will throw some more leaves in the river but yesterday’s wind did a pretty good job of clearing a lot of them.
