Yesterday started off as cold but warmed up when the sun was out.  We had a few intermittent snow showers but no appreciable accumulation.  We’re really looking forward to the warming air temperatures in the forecast this week.  We should hit 41 today which will feel like Spring.  If we really see 50 and 60 degree air temps by the weekend it will feel like summer!  We may see a few snow showers today and tomorrow but it shouldn’t last long once we warm up.  Streamers are still your best bet bet.  The color seems to change every day so switch it up and see what the fish want to eat.  The warmer air temperatures should help the water temps.  A little sunshine hitting the water would go a long way too.  Once the water temps come up a few days we should start to see some olives on the water and more stoneflies.  The release from Cannonsville is 1,499 cfs and there is 696 cfs spilling.
