Yesterday had more clouds than Accuweather predicted and it definitely made the fish more comfortable rising.  We had decent mixes of sulphurs, isonychias, and olives, plus a few more golden drakes.  The cahills were the winner for us yesterday with the spinners coming towards dark.  The recording for Cannonsville Dam is stating a release of 633 cfs this morning.  Stilesville is showing 598 cfs but for some reason that kind of difference shows up once in a while up there.  Accuweather is calling for air temps in the 70’s today with mostly sunny skies. Winds should gust around 8 – 10 mph.
