Finally!  Yesterday we found the first steady rising fish eating a mix of stoneflies, Blue Quills, and Quill Gordons.  They were feeding steadily for about an hour in the late afternoon in the slower edges and pools.  The streamer fishing improved dramatically and the fish were very active and happy.  It was a great day to be on the river.  The air temps are cooling down today but it looks like we will be on a warming trend over the weekend until Sunday.  Cannonsville is at 101% capacity with a release of  1540 cfs.
