The release from Cannonsville was cut back a bit yesterday and the flow at Stilesville is 597 cfs this morning.  We were hit by an early rain storm but not much precip fell.  We did keep some clouds for most of the afternoon and saw more olives out than we’ve seen lately.  There were some sulphurs and isonychias mixed in.  Today looks similar but a little cooler.  We’ll have an air temp around 80 with wind 5 – 10 from the North.  We may see some scattered rain in the late afternoon.  The low tonight will be 52 degrees.

Water temps are hot on the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, the East Branch at Fishs Eddy, and the Mainstem at Lordville.  Give the fish a break in those areas and fish colder water.
