We had a little rain overnight but so far the flows on the system have barely budged.  Yesterday fished well for October with pseudos and a few Isonychias on sections of the Mainstem.  The wind picked up a little but never became a real problem.  We are looking at sporadic light showers over the next few days with air temps peaking in the low 50’s.  I hope Accuweather is correct on their wind predictions with gusts only reaching 4 mph today.  This could turn out to be a great olive afternoon.  The entire system remains wadeable and the flow at Stilesville is 171 cfs this morning. The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 50 degrees this morning.

It seems NY forgot how to ramp down the releases from Cannonsville.  Hopefully not too many redds were exposed on the upper West Branch this week.


NY can protect spawning fish from anglers but not from their own water policies.
