The release from Cannonsville Reservoir is still 1,499 cfs.  The spill has dropped to 76 cfs as the reservoir level has dropped.  On the other side of the system the level of Pepacton Reservoir has slowly been creeping up and sits at 98.9%.  The air temp should hit the mid 50’s with a light rain.  Total rainfall should be under 1/4″ so it’s shaping up to be a nice day.  Wunderground is still calling for unseasonably warm temps Friday and Saturday so the weekend looks good.  We should see some more rain push in Sunday through Monday.  The stoneflies were a little more active yesterday afternoon once the air warmed up.  Your best shot at fishing those on top are long, slow pools or back eddys.    Streamers are still your best bet right on the West Branch right now.  the EB and Beaverkill are still dropping offering a good mix of nymph and streamer fishing.
