We were missed by a lot of the rain and ice yesterday but we did not get missed by the falling air temp and wind.  As a result most of the water temps are starting off a lot lower today.  Most people fished streamers yesterday mainly because the wind made it tough to do anything else.   According to Wunderground we will see the air temp climb to almost 50 today but will not be able to shake off the wind.  Gusts are going to be pretty strong.  We should see a little over 1/2″ of rain today.  That may be enough to get both Pepacton and Cannonsville Reservoirs spilling.  This all seems kind of crazy after seeing all the people with sunburns fishing Saturday.  If you fish today your best bet will be to nymph the upper East or throw streamers on the other sections.
