Last night turned out to be very cool with a mix of light rain. The rain still did not cause the flows to rise but the weather certainly is keeping the water temperatures in great shape on most of the system.  Lordville is starting off a61 degrees this morning which is almost unheard of in mid- August.  Accuweather is calling for a high air temp here of 69 degrees today with sun and variable clouds.  The winds are predicted to be 2 mph which is a welcome change.  So far they seem to be a bit more than that so hopefully they drop during the day.  The Upper West Branch should offer the normal sulphur and BWO hatches while the Lower WB and Upper Main Stem should see some olive, summer stenos, a few Isonychias, and smaller sulphurs towards dark.  The Tricos have been hatching but the spinner falls are happening later in the day due to the cooler weather.  We’ve even seen them after lunch on some of the colder days.
