The release from Cannonsville was dropped slightly again and is 1,315 cfs this morning.  We had clouds most of yesterday and it looked like it should have been a great olive day.  There were a few bugs out but not as many as we expected.  Blind casting isonychias and cahills seemed to be the most effective method.  When people did find steady rising fish small olives were the answer.  We’re going to be a little warmer today with the air temp hitting the high 70’s.  We have clouds and a 30% chance of light rain. It looks like a good olive day- hopefully they hatch in good numbers and stay on the water.  Have a couple flying ants with you today too.  As it warms up this afternoon the humidity may trigger them.
