It feels like October this morning!  The cool temps this morning will give way to sun and mid 60s this afternoon.  The flow on the West Branch is going up this morning but the release hotline has not been updated at this time.  We are still seeing the olives in mid- afternoon with a few Isonychias.  I would still carry some Cahills just in case but that hatched seems to have waned.  Most of the fish are willing to eat the larger #18 olives making life a little easier for the fisherman but there are a lot of pseudos #22 -26 out there right now.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 51 degrees this morning.  It looks like we have some rain moving in overnight which could really get the olives going over the next few days.
