A lot of the rain either missed us or was delayed yesterday.  The release from Cannonsville is now 567 this morning.  It looks like they bumped it up over 1,000 cfs last night but have dropped it back now that the rain is here.  So far the rain has been nice and steady and not overwhelming.  We should end up just shy of 1/2″ today.  So far the Easter drainage flows haven’t budged much.  It’s definitely cooler out there now that the front has pushed in.  We’ll see air temperatures in the low 50’s today.  Winds will be high – gusting to 20 mph.  Look for wind protected areas as your best bet.  Nymphing and streamers will likely be the most productive methods.  There were some olives out yesterday so if you do get a break in the wind keep an eye out.
