Ridiculous.  Yesterday the release from Cannonsville was 568 cfs.  The Stilesville graph shows an increase to 800 cfs late yesterday.  This morning the release has been cut back to 300 cfs.  Again regardless of the press there is absolutely zero concern or respect for the people downstream of the dams and the Flexible Flow Management Plan doesn’t seem all that flexible when it concerns the downstream habitat.

We have some rain this morning that should help the dry fly fishing.  Olives and isonychias mixed with a few caddis.  The weather forecast is now calling for light rain through Tuesday.  It should fish well if the forecast holds and wading will certainly be easy.

Ridiculous
