The release from Cannonsville was decreased for routine maintenance.  The release may be increased once the work is complete so check the Stilesville Gauge every once in a while today just in case.  Yesterday we saw decent numbers of blue quill mixed with hendricksons.  Definitely a few olives out there too.  Today looks like a good one ahead with the air temp reaching 59, sun giving way to afternoon clouds, and wind 10 – 15 from the North.  Similar to yesterday with a bit more sun and warmth.

We are following the State’s order and are closed right now.  We are still fulfilling mail orders in the online store:

Curbside pickup is now a shipping option in the online store

Let’s keep the local pictures going.  Since everyone should be fishing local to their homes send us pictures of your locally caught fish and we’ll put them here on the blog.  Even chubs would be cool.  Email them to
