The release from Cannonsville Reservoir is 232 cfs.  they are counting on the rain tomorrow to meet the Montague Flow Target.  Wunderground still shows a 100% chance of a lot of rain tomorrow afternoon.  In the meantime today looks like it will be an exact copy of yesterday.  Air temperatures in the 60’s, a few clouds, and some winds that will drop back towards dark.  There are still caddis, a few isonychias, and of course olives around.  Yesterday looked like a good day to nymph or swing wets.  Most of the bugs we saw hatching got of the surface quickly in the sun and wind.  There were some fish rising but you had to look hard for a consistent riser.  Big slow pools have produced the best for us.  A lot of the fish have been moving so be patient
