They have been dropping the release from Cannonsville reservoir overnight.  The recording states we will eventually end up with a release of 820 cfs until further notice.  We had decent hatches of olives in the evening mixed with a few Cahills and Isonychias.  During they day nymphing was the best option once the sun hit the water and burned off the fog.  We are coming off a cool night so temperatures look good.  The East Branch and Beaverkill could definitely use some water.  The West Branch temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 50 degrees this morning and topped out around 56 degrees yesterday afternoon.
