The release from Cannonsville has been increased a bit to 843 cfs.  The flow on the lower East Branch and and on the Beaverkill have dropped dramatically since yesterday morning.  The runoff from the rain is subsiding and the West was likely increased to help meet the Montague Flow Target.  We had some caddis and isonychia spinners in the air last evening.  There were some fish eating on top but it looked like they were chasing the caddis pupa or the diving egg laying caddis.  Nymphing and wets would be the most successful methods.  There is still color in the West Branch coming out of the dam.  It’s definitely fishable and it makes it a little more tempting to through streamers.  We should have clouds for most of the day.  There may be some wind but there are enough leaves out there that you can still find sheltered areas if you need to.
