The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 700 cfs. The level is good for both wading and floating and the increase will keep the West Branch cool. The lower East Branch, Beaverkill and Main Stem are warm, check the temperature with a thermometer first if you’re fishing for trout. Today looks like another sunny, warm day – get out there early or stay past dark if you can. Sulphurs, olives, cahills, and isonychias are still the hatches of choice.
