Welcome to the second day of summer! Yesterday we had some unexpected cloud cover show up early in the afternoon, which made for some happy bugs, and hungry fish. No complaints at all there! The hatching did slow down latre on in the afternoon, but picked back up as the day progresed. The fish were a bti skittish with the clear skies, but plenty were also taken tossing streamers. As for today, it looks like our spill has finally stopped over the top of Cannonsville, and our release is down to 1,000 cfs. This will produce cool, super clear water, and hopefully jump start our sulphurs up in the No-Kill section. We will continue to have cold water down here as well, but I would not anticipate seeing tons of bugs until later 0n, once the sun has dropped.
