The release from Cannonsville has been dropped again and the flow at Stilesville is 325 cfs.  This was done in anticipation of the runoff meeting the downstream flow targets.  If  Wunderground is correct we’ll see close to 2″ of rain mixed with some snow over the next two days.  We’re also in for quite a cold snap but we should warm back up early next week.  We’re still fishing small olives for the most part with the occasional small isonychia and caddis thrown in the mix.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The higher the release the more color will be in the river.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
