Here we are on August 1st looking at Cannonsville Reservoir at 93.1% capacity and the the water temperature on the West Branch is 55 degrees under the 191 Bridge in Hancock.  The most incredible part is that we are still fishing all the way down to Long Eddy on the Mainstem!  We have the normal sulphurs hatching mid afternoon on the upper West Branch and are still finding fish eating during the day all the way down the Mainstem.  The farther down you go the less you will see but the opportunity is definitely there- especially with the forecast for the weekend.  We are looking at some intermittent thunderstorms which cold be great for olive and Isonychia hatches.

West Branch temperatures haven't touched 70 degrees all season!
