No change in the release from Cannonsville overnight. It sounds like we’re going to have the 1,400 cfs release for a bit.  People are wading in a few spots but that’s tough.  The Beaverkill / Willowemoc flows are still dropping and there are places to wade on those rivers. Yesterday we found scattered olives and some fish eating during the day. There were a few Heptagenias and Isonychias around too.  The dry fly fishing dropped off towards evening when the fog rolled in.  We had a brief rain shower mid afternoon but not enough to affect the flows.  Today will be sunny with a high of 72 degrees.  Wind will be 5 – 10 from the North.
