Accuweather is calling for warmer temps, clouds, light rain, and moderate winds today.  If they are correct we should see decent olive hatches in the afternoon- especially in the slower pools and tailouts.  The release hotline has not been updated since Sunday but the flow at Stilesville is 1100 cfs and the the East Branch continues to starve for water.  Hopefully the rain over the next couple of days helps out the Beaverkill and lower East.  Yesterday fished well if you could find a wind protected spot.  There are quite a few Pseudos hatching but the fish are still eating larger olives.
