The release from Cannonsville has been in creased to 670 cfs.  The release from Pepacton looks like it increased to 290 cfs (ish).  The runoff is dropping back so the increases are likely to meet the flow targets downstream.  We don’t have any rain in the forecast until early next week.  We’ll hit 60 degrees today with wind around 5 – 7 mph from the North.  According to Wunderground we’ll have cloud cover all day.  Yesterday evening fished well with caddis and yellow sallies.  There were some olives and isonychias out there too.  Caddis were the main bugs so you had to be patient.  There were a lot in the air but enough were getting on the water you could find fish eating them.  There was actually a surprising number of yellow sallies out for October.
