Yesterday’s sporadic showers turned into a steady rain for the most of the day.  The change in weather was great for the fishing bringing decent hatches of Isonychias and Cahills- and blanket olive hatches in sections.  For the most part the fish ignored the pseudos and were eating Isos and Cahills.  Streamer was also productive on the West Branch- especially once the color turned a bit from the rain.  Accuweather is calling for mid 60’s air temps today with sun and a few clouds coming through.    The release from Cannonsville is 1,112 cfs until further notice.  The West Branch temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 49 degrees this morning.  There is a little color in the lower West Branch but it is fishable this morning.
