The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 1,499 cfs.  The flows are the rest of the system are dropping slowly.  The West Branch still has some color coming in from the feeder streams but it is clear enough for fish to rise.  Starting off with streamers or blind casting an isonychia with a dropper would be good bets until you see a fish rise.  There are quite a few small olives hatching but you need to find slow water that the fish can set up in to find risers.  Today is going to be warmer with some sunshine but we shouldn’t see any rain.
