We woke up to some decent wind with a little rain this morning.  Some of the higher elevations in the area have seen a little snow but so far we’ve been lucky.  Wind gust will be around 20 mph and the air temp should only hit 37 degrees so dress appropriately.  It’s going to be colder for the next couple of days but we should see a slight warmup on Tuesday.  Streamer fishing is probably your best bet with today’s winds.  There are still enough leaves on the trees that you may find a few protected areas.


Keep in mind the Upper West Branch from Cannonsville Dam to Monument is closed.  The East Branch from Pepacton Dam to Shinopple Bridge is also closed.
