The release on the West Branch has been increased this morning.  This is another day it would be better for the system if NYC DEP would release the extra water needed for the down stream flow targets from the Pepacton Reservoir.  We are coming off another cool night but the daytime temperatures are warming up a bit with highs expected in the mid to high 70’s today.  We should be mostly sunny with winds only gusting to 7 mph.  Sounds like a pleasant Fall day ahead of us.  We should see olives mixed with a few sulphurs in the evening.  It seems like a good forecast for a spinner fall this evening so if you are out on the water at dark bring your isonychia and cahill spinners.
