The wind made yesterday tough.  It really was blowing 20 to 30 mph for a while.  A few people braved the wind.  There were a couple breaks of calm in the afternoon but overall it was a nymphing wet fly day.  Today looks totally different with winds around 7 mph this morning bumping up a bit in the afternoon.  We should see more sunshine with a high air temp around 45 degrees.  The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 774 cfs.  Cannonsville Reservoir is at 98.8% capacity with 1,230 cfs flowing in from Walton.  The weather reports for tomorrow are all over the place.  We should see somewhere between 1 – 3″ of rain with maybe a few snowflakes mixed in.  Then we head right into a beautiful weekend with air temps in the low 60’s with no precipitation.
