The release from Cannonsville Reservoir has been decreased to 996 cfs.  While there have been a few people wading the West the lower water will open up a few more areas today.  Overall the water is still dropping throughout the system and water temperatures look great this morning.  Yesterday was a mixed bag with some people finding fish on hendricksons, some on caddis, and some throwing streamers.  Look for the warmest water temperatures to find the best hatching.  We are finding a few ble quill and hendrickson spinners on the door in the morning too.  Today will be a little cooler with air temps in the low 60’s with good cloud cover.  winds will pick up in the afternoon as a front comes in.  Luckily the trees are beginning to leaf out so there may be some spots offering a little more protection today.  There is a chance of a thunderstorm so bring your raincoat.
