The West Branch is up slightly this morning but is still in good shape for wading and floating. The release from Cannonsville has been raised slightly to 594 cfs. We had some light rain overnight but it wasn’t enough to change the flows. The buildings are covered in small olives this morning which is a good start to Fall. Along with the olives we’ve been seeing more caddis and #14 isonychias. If the clouds stick around today we could see some decent fishing in the bigger pools. Winds will be light under 10 mph all day. We have light rain in the forecast from Thursday through Saturday night. If we keep the clouds and light rain going this could be a very good weekend to be on the water.
