The release from Cannonsville is 1,038 cfs this morning. The flow at Downsville is still 329 cfs.  Despite the recent rains it looks like they still need additional water from Cannonsville and Pepacton to meet the downstream flow targets.  We were hit with a decent downpour overnight but it must have been brief since none of the freestone flows budged.  The forecast for the week looks like cooler temperatures with a little precipitation thrown in. Overall not bad for late October.  Winds have been up a bit over the last few days but there are still olives hatching with fish eating them on the warmer afternoons.  Streamers are definitely a good bet today with the increased release mixed with the slight runoff.
