Well it looks like NY didn’t forget how to do the old “Yo Yo” releases after all.  The release from Cannonsville will drop to 600 cfs this morning so after all of the increases and decreases over the last few days we are back where we’ve been for most of the Summer.  The recording did mention a stepped down drop but that is not showing on the graph at Stilesville- it looks like it was just cut to 600.  The fishing was decent last night with large numbers of olives coming off on the lower West Branch and Upper Mainstem from around 5 PM into dark.  There are still some sulphurs on the Upper West and we had more success with Isonychias last night than we’ve had in a while. The cloud cover and slight color in the river made streamers productive in the morning before the hatching.  The lower West Branch is 54 degrees under the 191 Bridge this morning.
