Good news for wading fans of the West Branch- the release from Cannonsville has been reduced to 800 cfs “until further notice”- this should open up more wading opportunities and add a little more slow water where the fish will be willing to rise to small olives.  Hale Eddy is still dropping this morning bet should settle in to the mid 800 cfs range by the afternoon.  The hatching continues to be decent with a lot of olives and a few Isonychias thrown in for good measure.  We are also seeing a lot of caddis in the evening.  If you don’t see fish rising to them a pupa swung had been effective.  The temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 55 degrees this morning.
