Wheeeee! Down to the bottom of the coaster we are starting to head again. the release from Cannonsville dropped to 500 CFS overnight. Not super-hyper-mega dramatic, but it’s definitely an indicator of which way we are heading – down that is. We may see a big drop tonight, and a pickup on the weekend. Who knows? Regardless of this, the fishing was  pretty decent yesterday, and I am getting some good reports from the upper Main (And the parking area at Stockport looked like a day in May). Olives in the evening, and the Heptagenias started in earnest down there around 3PM. Let’s hope the wind stays down, and the sun stays away today, and we could expect another good one out there.

I think what the DEP does induces more nausea than one of these.
