It seems like we received all of the rain we usually get in June in one shot last night. The West Branch is dropping quickly but it is running brown this morning. It should clear by tomorrow. Today looks like a streamer day with a shot of dries maybe in the afternoon. The West Branch peaked at 1400 cfs but has now dropped back to 750 cfs. The upper West above the reservoir peaked over 800 cfs and has already dropped back to 220 cfs. It seems like it was a very localized storm with the West Branch drainage taking the brunt of the precipitation for a change.
The West Should be okay to fish in Stilesville. It is running 510 cfs this morning. You should see sulphurs, cahills, and isonychias up there. Most of the color should be coming in from Oquaga Creek in Deposit.
