Yesterday ended up being a tough day on the river. The weather was great and the water temps looked good but the fish never really got going.  Dry fly shots were few and far between and nymphing was tough with the slight color in the water.  Streamers fared better in the evening as the sun dropped.  Today should be better fishing on falling water rather than the rising water we had for a good part of yesterday.  Cannonsville is at 99.3% capacity.
