The release from Cannonsville was dropped slightly to 1,139 cfs – just a small adjustment so you’ll notice no real change this morning.  It looks like they will not be releasing from Lake Wallenpaupack at least through Saturday night.  Any rain we receive over the next few days will soak right into the ground.  It looks like we should keep the higher release to meet the Montague flow target.  We’re going to have another warm day with sunshine today.  Look for the banks that get shade early if you’re looking for rising fish.  The little olives are around in good numbers even sometimes mid-day in the sun.  The cahill / stenos, isonychias, and caddis have been more active towards evening.  There have been a lot of caddis out there both hatching and diving to lay eggs.  A good caddis pupa should work well in the riffles.
