Great news- Cannonsville is 97.4 % full!  Another interesting number according to the phone message – The release from Cannonsville is now 1,499 cfs. I’m really glad they’re conserving that 1 cfs.

According to the weatherman we are on a warming trend.  The daytime temps look comfortable and the night time temps are climbing over the next few days.  This should help the water temps climb closer to the magic number of 50 degrees bringing some insect activity.  Add in a little light rain and the conditions are definitely improving!  As the water warms the fish will be more likely to come to the surface to eat the early brown and black stoneflies.  Keep an eye on the slower pools and edges for splashy rises and cover them quick.  Streamers and nymphs should be more productive as the water warms up too.
