The clouds stuck around most of the day yesterday finally breaking up mid afternoon.  As a bonus the wind was not too strong until late in the day too.  The olives hatched and the fish responded nicely.  The release from Cannonsville has been raised to 854 cfs this morning until further notice.  The flow at Hale Eddy is still climbing but should settle in just under 900 cfs by mid afternoon.  Most of the fish seem to be willing to eat #18 olives still but definitely have the #24 -26 Psuedos ready..  Yesterday’s rain did offer a little relief for the East Branch and the Beaverkill.  Not as much as we would have liked to see but every drop helps.

Keep an eye out for the caddis in the evenings
