There were quite a few fish rising on the West Branch late yesterday afternoon.  It looked like a good number of olives on the water with some caddis in the mix.  The weather was great and it was a pleasant day out there.  Today should be warmer with the air temp reaching the high 50’s.  There is a breeze this morning but so far it”s manageable.  We may see some wind and rain push through in the early evening but most of it seems to be coming towards dark.  We should have decent cloud cover all day.  The forecast changes every time we look so keep an eye on the latest.  The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 880 cfs this morning.  The release from Pepacton has also been increased and the flow at Downsville is 643 cfs.
