We received the rain we were hoping for to fill the reservoirs. Hale Eddy has jumped to 1,190 this morning with a little color. The feeders are pushing in the color, but as of right now the West Branch is definitely clear enough to fish. Yesterday was another nymph day with a little streamer action. We are still relying on stoneflies and little black caddis for sporadic dry fly action but the hendrickson and blue quill nymphs are getting more active and look mature. It won’t be long before we see the upright wings on the surface. Cannonsville is at 97.3% capacity with an inflow from the WB at Walton of 1,100 cfs.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock peaked around 55 degrees yesterday and is starting off at 48 degrees this morning.
