The release from Cannonsville has been dropped back slightly to 1,074 cfs this morning.  Luckily it’s going to be cooler only hitting 69 degrees today.  We will have the afternoon sun and wind 5 – 10 from the North.  Yesterday’s forecasted rain missed us.  We did have some clouds mixed with sun but not a drop on the lower West.  Yesterday’s bump in release seemed to shut the bugs off a little but people landed some nice fish on streamers and nymphs.  Overall is was a good day on the water.  Hopefully everything settles in today and the olives hatch.  If we’re real lucky the release will at least stay steady for 24 hours.
