We had good periods of light showers on and off for most of yesterday – plus some additional rain overnight.  It soaked into the ground and there is no real change to the freestones or East Branch flows this morning.  The release from Cannonsville has been dropped slightly to 842 cfs.  We should keep the clouds today but not see any additional rain until tomorrow.  The sun may peak through in the afternoon and the air temp will hit 80 degrees.  Wind from the South 5 – 10 mph.  Olives, caddis, isonychias, and heptagenia were out there but the small olives were on the buildings by mid afternoon.  The West Branch still has good color for streamers but the visibility is still there for dry fly fishing.
