The West Branch release has been dropped slightly again to 574 cfs but is still floatable. Today will look much like yesterday: sunny and moderate during the day with a cool night. The nights have helped dropped the water temperatures, even on the low water of the East Branch. Olives and Isos have been working well, but make sure your box has flying ants and small dark Caddis. Lower water should make nymphing productive, even with the sun.
