The sun is out but today is going to stay cooler with air temps staying in the 30’s.  The warmer weather starts tomorrow and looks like it’s sticking around.  Cannonsville Reservoir is spilling 910 cfs and the release is 1,499 cfs.  The Upper East Branch and Beaverkill flows have both drooped back and will offer some wade opportunities.  Keep in mind the water is cold so dress appropriately.  The stonefly activity should increase as we warm up this week.  Put some olives in your box just in case.  They can’t be too far off.  you may find some alewives in the Cannonsville spill.  Their numbers should increase as the reservoir surface temperature increases.  There is still some snow pack left to melt in the higher elevations.

 

The Upper East is in good shape and dropping slowly this morning
