Here we are on another day they are using only the release from the West Branch to meet downstream flow targets while the East Branch starves.  The release from Cannonsville Reservoir is currently 1,317 cfs while the flow at Harvard is 99 this morning.  Fish’s Eddy is a pathetic 166 cfs.  The current storage in Cannonsville is 63.5% capacity and Pepacton is 76% capacity.  I don’t think it would destroy the NYC water supply to spread the love around a little.  We are still seeing plenty of olives on the water mixed with some Isonychias and a few different dark caddis.  The bright sun slowed fishing down during the day but shaded areas fished well for risers and things picked up once the sun dropped a bit.  Today looks like another warm one- hopefully the rain they are predicting over the next few days actually hits here for a change!
