Well it took a while but the system is in great shape and good for both wading and floating.  The temperatures dropped on the West Branch over night due to the decease in the amount of warm spill and the cold release of 525 cfs.  We are still seeing Hendricksons on the West Branch and the beginning of the March Browns.  The East Branch and Mainstem have March Browns and the fish are eating them.  The hatch should continue to improve throughout the week.  If you go down far enough there have been some sightings of a few Green Drakes.  The sun has hurt the mid day activity but the evenings have been fishing great.  Definitely have your spinner box full.
