Happy Independence Day! July 3 was definitely interesting out on the river, with thick fog rolling in every time the rain decided to come down, making visibility tough and the hatching sporadic to say the least. With the Cannonsville release now at 1,200 CFS, that will likely happen today as well if there are any passing showers. There are a few predicted, but as we all know the weathermen are not the most reliable bunch! There were good numbers of sulphurs on the shop this morning, and our first sighting of Heptagenia Hebe as well! Enjoy the fourth everyone, and be safe out there!
