Another drop in the release from Cannonsville brings us to 627 cfs this morning. A less drastic drop like this shouldn’t make the fish as cranky as the large drops in release and the river is still in good shape for wading and floating. The cooler nights are here to stay, keeping the river temperatures at a great level for trout fishing. Olives and cahills remain the mayflies to watch for but keep some isonychias and flying ants on hand. Nymphing should be productive with the slight drop in water level today.
