The Cannonsville release has been cut back.  The recording says the release is 541 cfs but the USGS gage shows Stilesville at 407 cfs.  They did not do a stellar job of ramping down the water either.  Cannonsville is currently at 99.8% capacity.  Most of the system had a decent hatch of Hendricksons mixed with Blue Quills yesterday.  The fish were eating when the wind wasn’t gusting.  Today looks great with a high of 60, sun, and moderate winds with some decent gusts.
