The release from Cannonsville has been dropped to 326 cfs as of 8 am this morning.  It has been dropping around 100 cfs each hour but should settle in by mid morning.  It will take a while for the water levels to drop on the lower West and Mainstem.  The East Branch release has also been cut leaving a flow of 259 cfs at Downsville.  There is no projected release from Lake Wallenpaupack.  We do have some rain and possible snow in the higher elevations over the next couple of days.  Day time air temperatures will be in the 40’s and possibly even in the 50’s on the weekend.  The lower water may concentrate the small blue winged olives on the West and East.  There are still a couple of isonychias around too.  Wet fly and nymph fishing should pick up and streamers have still been effective.
