The East Branch temperatures peaked over 50 degrees yesterday but the 30 mph wind gusts did not help the fish rise.  Today looks like a mirror image of yesterday.  Air temps in the 70s, beautiful morning with winds coming in the afternoon gusting in the high 20 mph range.  The fish have been chasing streamers on the West Branch and Mainstem, a few have been committing to the fly but most are turning off.  We need the water temps to come up a few more degrees.  We have some rain coming in tonight and lasting for a couple of days.  We should receive over an inch- hopefully making Cannonsville spill.  The Cannonsville release is currently 1499 cfs and the reservoir level is 97.9%
