Yesterday was an odd one on the West Branch.  The Cannonsville release was cut back to about 280 cfs for a brief period to rescue an immature eagle.  The eagle was rescued and the release was immediately increased back to where it was in the morning.  The release has now been dropped back to 588 cfs.  So a little weird but things will be fine and so far we’ve heard the eagle is fine.  No harm no foul.  We had a good rain storm last night that lasted about 10 minutes.  Today we have a 40% chance of more rain but Wunderground has the precip total listed as .06″.  The cloud cover should be good for the fishing.  Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South with the air temp reaching 76 degrees.  This morning the doors are covered with the most small isonychias we’ve seen so far this fall.  There are a lot of different sized olives out there too.  The caddis are all over the bushes.  Tough to say when they will hit the water but when they do it will be good.
