Today looks like a good day to be on the water.  We should see an air temp of 53 degrees, a light rain in the afternoon, and wind from the south 5 – 10 mph.  The rain should only amount to .14″ so we shouldn’t get too wet but should have good cloud cover all afternoon.  Streamers in the morning but it does look like a good olive day.  Watch the slow tailouts and edges in the afternoon.

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.
