And we go up again.  The release hotline states a release from Cannonsville of 775 cfs as of midnight until further notice.  The flow at Stilesville seems to be leveling off at 824 cfs.  The increased release will likely add to the green slime in the upper West Branch making nymphing or streamer fishing tough above Hale Eddy.  Usually by Balls Eddy there will still be some junk floating through but it’s generally fishable for subsurface tactics.  We had a decent mix of clouds and sun yesterday with most of the rising activity happening between 6 Pm and dark.  Today looks to be similar with some clouds moving in towards evening.  We are still seeing mid-morning Trico spinners in the air so keep an eye on the slow pools- especially on the Mainstem.  The temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 55 degrees this morning.
