We should see on and off showers today with good cloud cover.  the air temp should peak at 71 degrees with wind 5 – 10 mph from the North.  We had a good storm roll through overnight but it seems like most of the rain soaked into the ground.  The release from Cannonsville has been dropped back to 753 cfs.  There are still a lot of small olives hatching mixed with a few isonychias, cahills, caddis, and yellow sallies.  There are white flies hatching on the Mainstem.  We are catching fish on flying ants but haven’t seen a massive fall yet.  They may just stay spotty so ants are a good bet right now if you find fish rising and don’t see much on the water.
