It looks like the West Branch escaped most of the rain. The color looks fine  right now with some feeders bringing the flow up at Hale Eddy a little.  It does not seem that Cannonsville is spilling yet.  The WB at Walton is 733 cfs.  Yesterday was an interesting weather day with periods of rain and cool temps.  There was a nice hatch of Blue Quills in the afternoon and a few fish were caught on top.  Nymphing was also productive throughout the day.  Today the weatherman is calling for highs in the 60s with winds gusting to 11- not too bad.  This should be a good fishing day and we’ll keep an eye on Cannonsville for spill.
