The streamer bite was definitely in full-swing yesterday, so long as the clouds were passing overhead. During the sunny part of the day, the fish were a little less eager, but could still be had. There were also good flushes of Isos during the day, and if you were lucky enough to find them, good fish were feeding with reckless abandon! While there were good flushes of sulphurs in the evening, the fish did not seem to key in on them, preferring to keep munching on nice, big Alewives floating down the river! The release from Cannonsville is also up to 1,500 cfs, so our water will definitely be cool for the foreseeable future, and spillage should last for several more days.
