Crazy April weather!  The wind blew yesterday, but al least it was warm.  We have rain right now with pleasant temps hitting the low 60s but tonight it drops below freezing changing our rain into snow.  Then tomorrow we’re basck in the 40s and improving everyday right through the weekend.  Fish we’re eating streamers but we haven’t had consistent rising to the stoneflies yet.  Look for the warmest water in the system for you best opportunity of seeing fish on top.  Hpefully we get enough rain and snow to get Cannonsville spilling!  We’re at 98.2% capacity with a release of 1499.  That number makes me laugh- you know somewhere there was a meeting about releases and 1500 cfs came up.  Some guy in the back had to stand up and say “no, no that’s too much water.  Lets go with 1499 cfs”
