It looks like the work on Cannonsville is complete and they are increasing the release from Cannonsville and decreasing the release from Pepaction.  The release from Cannonsville should settle in at 351 cfs.  Click on the gauge links below for the latest flows.  Yesterday was an interesting weather day with periods of calm followed by bursts of heavy wind.  There was enough time with no wind for people to find some fish rising.  A few violent rain storms pushed through in the afternoon but that passed through very quickly.

It’s still been tiny olives, caddis, a few isonychias, and a few heptagenia.  Today will be a bit cooler at 55 degrees.  Wind will be 14 mph from the North with some heavier gusts but it should drop during the day.

There is some color in the West Branch from the release.  The cloudiness will increase if they raise the release.  It happens every Fall when the reservoir begins to turn over.
