The release from Stilesville has been cut back slightly and the flow at 6:30 am is 1,030 cfs.  They’ve been stepping the release back so click on the Stilesville gauge link below for the latest information.  We are still finding fish eating olives on top.  The olives still vary in size from #18 – 26.  Luckily the fish seem okay with the larger ones for the most part.  A few Isonychias and Heptagenias are around too.  Nymphs and streamers are also bringing some fish to net.  Today we’ll have good cloud cover but the wind will be 10 – 20 mph from the South.  We may see some rain in the afternoon.  Tomorrow there is a better chance of rain.  The forecast has been different every time we’ve checked so keep an eye on it.
