The release from Cannonsville is 232 cs this morning.  They are anticipating the rain adding enough flow to meet the Montague Flow Target.  The latest forecast from Wunderground has us receiving right aroun 1/2″ today.  It’s a big storm and looks like the rainfall totals could o either way with a little move north or south.  Wind will be the real story on the river today.  We should see 15 – 20 mph gusts from the South as this front pushes through.  There are some areas that offer some wind protection but count on nymphing or throwing streamers early.  The wind should drop to a more reasonable 10 mph in the afternoon giving us a shot at seeing some rising fish.  There are a few isonychias and heptagenia still hanging around and we’ve definitely seen the spinners but the real story is the tiny olives.  #20 – #26 emergers and spinners.



Slate Drake #14 – Isonychia bicolor
Little BWO – #22 – 26- Pseudocloeon sp.
Blue Wing Olives – #18 – Baetis sp.
Olive Sulphur – #18 – 20 – Heptagenia hebe
Little Tan Sedge – #16 – 18 – Glossosoma sp.
Green Caddis – #16 – Ryacophilia sp.
Tan Caddis #16 – 18 – Hydropsyche spp.
