Yesterday afternoon was beautiful in the sun but we woke up to a light dusting of snow on the ground.  The  warming trend is definitely here and the snow is melting.     We should hit 40 degrees this afternoon.  If Wonderground is correct we may see 70 degrees over the weekend.  The warmer air and yesterday’s sun helped this morning’s water temps giving most of the system a 3 degree boost over yesterday morning’s temps.  The fishing should improve over the next few days as the temps increase even more.  The release from Cannonsville Reservoir is 1,499 cfs with a spill of 497 cfs.  Most of the flows are dropping back and there is more wadeable water available.  The nymphing should get better in the lower water.  The slower currents are better for the fish eating stoneflies so keep and eye out for surface takes.
