Once again it seems most of the big storms brushed us as they slid north of us.  We had a couple heavy showers but they ended up being very short lived.  Most of the precipitation seemed to soak right into the ground and everything looks fine in Hancock this morning.  We had the usual mix of bugs with a few more olives out there.  We did have a few periods of sunshine but luckily they were brief and the clouds were around most of the day.  Today looks like another good day to be on the water.  We should have some clouds come in by early afternoon with rain only totalling 0.18″.  If the forecast is close to being correct today it should fish well.  The release from Cannonsville is 699 cfs.
