The release from Cannonsville is 1,140 cfs this morning.  The East Branch is still low.  Water temperatures are up a bit on the West Branch.  The release is now coming from a warmer level in the reservoir and we are coming off a much warmer night.  Temps still look good overall throughout the system.  The fish were eating streamers well yesterday.  There is that chalky color to the West Branch from the release that makes the fish fell more comfortable during the daylight.  We are in for quite a warm up over the next few days with air temperatures in the 70’s.  We’ll have clouds today and maybe a little light rain.  It looks like another good fishing day ahead of us.
