The release from Cannonsville has been dropped to 481 cfs until further notice.  This is a good level for wading and floating.   The lower flow should concentrate the olives making them more appealing and easier for the fish to rise to.  It will make it skinny in spots on the Mainstem since the East Branch has little water right now.  We are starting off with clouds this morning that should give way to sun in the afternoon.  Once the sun pops look for shaded banks like always.  The West is dropping fairly quickly so wading should be no problem even this morning.  Nymphing will pick up in the lower water levels too.  It looks like the rain is done for the next week but we should have clouds in and out- plus they change the forecast every hour.
