The release from Cannonsville Reservoir has been increased to 917 cfs this morning.  This flush of water will bring additional color and algae in the water – especially on the upper WB.  Dry fly and nymph fishing will be better on the East, Main, and Beaverkill.  Streamers have been working well on the West and that should continue with the higher flow.  We my have some sun this afternoon but overall it looks like we’re in for a cloudy week with maybe some light rain here and there.  There were a few olives and isonychias on the water yesterday but most of our fish were landed on caddis fished in the riffles.  The bushes are loaded with them so it’s a good time to work the shaded banks when they get active.

And we're back up
