Boy it was a sauna here yesterday. Hot and humid, all the way until dark. The clouds were out, giving us a respite here and there, and the bugs/fish took notice as well, getting active throughout the day, both upriver by Deposit and down by us. Our friend the fog was not as thick as we anticipated either, so the sulphurs were coming off strong, and the fish were definitely eating them! Definitely a good day overall. Today we’re scheduled to be a bit warmer, with some storms rolling through as the day progresses, so taht should make cor some interesting aquatic activity. The flow from Cannonsville has also been stepped down to 701 CFS, and will likely be stepped down to 600 by the end of the day. Not a huge shift in holding lanes for fish, but they might be a little flustered as we first get rolling today.
