The release from Cannonsville is 995 cfs until further notice.  The bump should make streamer fishing a viable option along with nymphing on the lower West Branch / Upper Mainstem.  There is a possibility of increased green slime and junk in the water on the upper WB so take a look at the water if you are planning on fishing above Hale Eddy.  We have some light sporadic rain this morning with decent cloud cover which should be good for the olive hatches.  The lower West Branch already seems clear of most of the fog and visibility is normal.  The temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 54 degrees this morning.
