June 1st and we’re wearing fleece this morning.  That’s great news for the water temps.  The daytime highs are going to start climbing and it will feel like Summer soon enough.  Stilesville dropped again which is not ideal for sunny days- the water will warm quicker now until we get rain or the release is increased.  Nymphing will be the best option during the day in the sunshine.  Look for risers in the shade and then the top water action should pick up as the sun drops.  We’ve had okay action on caddis during the day in some pools and a mix of Gray Fox, March Browns, and Stenos in the evening.  As of 8 am this morning the release line has not been updated.  The way I interpret the FFMP we should have 500 cfs coming out of Cannonsville.
