It’s finally April.  It’s also 33 degrees and snowing.  The weather warms up Saturday and looks really good through next week. March seemed pretty normal with a mix of cold days and really warm days.  People are catching fish now.  There are some caddis and stoneflies around plus just a few olives.  Streamers have brought most of the fish to net so far but nymphing has been working too.

Cannonsville is spilling a little (1.5 cfs) and the rain / snow has the river flows up a little this morning.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,499 cfs.
