Some of the thunderstorms hit us last night and there is a lot of water moving through the system this morning.  The West Branch at Hale Eddy is just under 2,000 cfs and is beginning to drop. The release is around 1,400 so the flow will drop a bit today but it will stay high.  There is some color to the water but it is fishable.  Wading is not recommended.  There is a lot of water coming in from the feeders downstream of the gauge.  Streamers worked yesterday in the rain along with some action on wet flies.  Today will be much cooler with some clouds and sunshine mixed.  74 degrees with light and variable winds.
