The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 928 cfs.  The rest of the system has dropped slightly as the runoff subsides.  The release from Pepacton is steady around 650 cfs leaving a flow at Downsville of 678 cfs.  Yesterday was hot with bright sun occasionally broken up with a little cloud cover.  The upper West Branch mid day sulphurs continue to hatch with a mix of olives and isonychias.  The lower West seems to be mostly olives with an occasional sulphur and isonychia passing by.  The increased release should cool down the lower West maybe pushing the bugs to hatch earlier in the day.  Today looks like a good fishing day with the air temp only hitting the mid 80’s, wind around 6 mph, and some light rain in the afternoon.
