We ended up with a light steady rain most of the day yesterday.  It was enough rain to bump up some of the freestone streams a bit.  The release from Cannonsville has been bumped up to 853 cfs.  Today is going to be cool staying in the low 50’s.  We’ll have some clouds early and some sun in the afternoon.  The air temp will drop into the mid 30’s overnight so it seems like fall really is here.  We should warm up a bit beginning tomorrow.  Isonychias, heptagenias, olives, and caddis.  Nymphing and streamers are working and are definitely your best bet early in the day.  The wind will peak around 15 mph from the North mid day and begin to drop in the late afternoon.  There are still enough leaves on the trees to hide from it a bit.
