The wind was with us again yesterday.  We had hatches of Blue Quills and Hendricksons on most of the system but the risers were tough to find during the wind gusts.  Fish were eating in the protected areas through the afternoon.  Nymphing drop offs was very productive.  Most of the activity shut down as the sun set and the temperatures dropped.  Today looks like a beautiful day with temps in the 60s, sun, and winds actually under 6 mph.  Cannonsville is now 100% capacity.
