The release from Cannonville is 910 cfs. The release from Pepacton has been increased this morning and the flow at Downsville is now 478 cfs. The Beaverkill is slowing dropping back as the runoff subsides but it’s really cool to see the East Branch flow at Fishs Eddy at 644 cfs this morning. People have found some fish on the lower EB over the last few weeks so it may be worth a look. We’ll have some wind to deal with again today but if you can get in a calm area there have been a mix of olives hatching with a few isonychias still. Streamers have definitely been the most productive method followed by nymphing. Air temperatures will be in the 40’s today with light rain / heavy mist at times. Some of the higher elevations may see a quick snow shower but so far we haven’t seen a flake in the lower elevations along the river.
