Wow. September. Gotta let that sink in….. OK.

As David and I put our Canada Goose decoys out early this morning, we were a bit shocked by the water level – as in, “why the heck am I up to my chest here?” Well, the reason is that the release from Cannonsville has been increased to 1,500 CFS, so we are probably back well over 2,000 CFS here at the shop. This also accounts for the large amount of fog on the river not present last night (and making all the geese sit tight). In all likelihood, the fishing will be a bit off today as a result of this shock of cold water coming down through the system. The rule of 24 applies however (and no, not that Jack Bauer always gets his guy) – everything tends to even out after a 24-hour period, which should be this evening for most of the river system, definitely picking up for the better by the weekend!
