The West Branch is in great shape this morning. We had a small bump in the flow at Stilesville this morning and are running at 620 cfs.  The release is still 600 cfs “until further notice.” The West Branch under the 191 Bridge is 56 degrees this morning.  Today looks like the last sunny day we’ll have to put up with at least through Thursday.  We’ll see how much rain the storms actually bring since most of our weather seems to be localized.  The clouds and drop in air temperature will be a welcome relief.  The best daytime dryfly activity continues to be on the Upper West Branch.  On the lower West Branch try nymphing during the day and look for dryfly action as the sun drops.  The lower East Branch peaked over 70 degrees yesterday and the Mainstem at Lordville peaked close to 67 degrees so fish with your thermometer if you fish anywhere other than the Upper East Branch and Upper West Branch.
