Yesterday was another cloudy day with nor rain.  The sun broke through a few times but not for long.  Once again people saw mostly olives with a few isonychias and cahills in the mix.  Patience has paid off in the high water.  Waiting for a fish to rise on a good seam or bank has been the way to go.  You can target the one timers with isos but if you’re looking for steady fish go slow and watch the soft water.  There is some rain in today’s forecast but it should be less than 1/10th of an inch.  That should give us good cloud cover in the afternoon.  The release from Cannonsville has been tepped down slightly again to 1,237 cfs.
