It looks like both Cannonsville and Pepacton Reservoirs are spilling this morning.  We did not get the rain totals that people east of us did but we received enough.  The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls is flowing over 3,000 cfs this morning.  It will take a few days for the runoff to subside over there.  The West Branch flow just started to climb around midnight so it’s just beginning the register on the gauge at Stilesville.  There is just a lot of water out there right now so if you fish be careful.  It definitely looks like streamers on today’s menu.  There’s not a lot of precipitation in the forecast for the rest of the week and we should have a bit of a warm up on Saturday.
