For some people yesterday’s dry fly action was mid afternoon and then tapered off in the evening.  Good olives with some yellow sallies and caddis.  There were a few isonychias and cahills out too.  We’re in for one oddly warm day today hitting the low 80’s and then we drop back to more normal temps tomorrow.  We may see a little rain this morning but should be left with just clouds in the afternoon.  Total precip today looks negligible with 1/4″ coming tomorrow.  The release from Cannonsville dropped slightly to 896 cfs.  The West Branch is okay to wade in some spots but the best wading is on the Mainstem right now.
