The current release from Cannonsville is 1264 cfs so we are up a little from yesterday.  We had a decent flush of olives in the evening that brought some fish to the surface.  There were some Summer Stenos and Isonychias mixed in but most of the fish preferred the olives.  We are started off cool this morning and are looking at a high air temp of 62 degrees with some sporadic showers.  Sounds like a great olive day!  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 50 degrees this morning.  The cool nights have helped the water temperatures throughout the system down to Callicoon.  The Beaverkill / East Branch side could definitely use some rain.
