We were staring at graphs all day wondering where they thought the water was going to come from or when they were going to increase the Cannonsville release.  It was another Yo Yo move.  The release is now 853 cfs to help meet the Montague Flow Target.  We had decent cloud cover for most of yesterday with some very, very light precipitation in the evening.  People landed fish on isonychias, caddis, and tiny olives.  We heard it was the most isonychias people had seen in a while.  Today is going to be warmer with more sun.  The hatches should remain the same.  Streamers become an option again in the higher West Branch flows.
