The best bet for dry fly action is going to be above Oquaga Creek on the West Branch.  We were hit with more rain overnight but the flow in Stilesville is 339 cfs this morning.  It should be clear and fishable up there and it is definitely wadeable.  The lower West Branch is off color but looks really good for streamer fishing.  The flow at Hale Eddy is 1,140 cfs so if you are wading below Deposit pick your spots carefully.  The Eastern drainage is definitely off color and running high.  The flow in Downsville is 136 cfs and the flow at Harvard is 1,150 cfs.  There’s a lot of water in those feeder creeks right now.  We may get a little more rain today but Wunderground is only predicting .03″.  We should keep the cloud cover which will help the olive and sulphur fishing on the upper West Branch.
