Happy Labor Day! I hope all of you not laboring are enjoying a much needed day off. As for here, we will be open and looking for you! The good news today is that there has been no change in the flow overnight, the bad news is that it means we’re still at a 325 release. Cooler temps yesterday helped keep the lower West cool, but not really cool enough, as the  majority of the hatching occurred right before dark. There were flurries of activity prior to that, and we had several folks staying with us down in Home Pool happily report ‘cooperative’ fish. They’re our favorite kind! It appears that Isaac will not come and pound us here in the NE as many had hoped, so we’re hoping the rain and t-storms predicted for the rest of the week materialize and drench us a little bit. Today we’re looking at mostly cloudy skies, so it’s a safe bet that olives are in order!
