It was a pretty dang decent day out there yesterday on the river (well, at least the West Branch). The East and Main are still running pretty muddy, and appeared to actually get dirtier as the day went on yesterday. Let’s hope that trend changes. The West is clear, and good hatches of Stenos and Isos last night kept the action going. Today we’re starting off with a fairly warm morning (compared to the last few days), so I would expect the morning action to take place a bit earlier today. It’s definitely cloudy and foggy still, so we should see some olives as long as the clouds decide to stick around. Speaking of sticking around, due to the high flows on the other two branches, don’t expect the release out of Cannonsville to change in the near future. This 300 cfs flow should stick around for awhile.
