The release from Cannonsville was increased slightly yesterday afternoon, then dropped back slightly to 1267 cfs this morning.  It seems crazy to solely use the West Branch to meet downstream flow targets when Mainstem temperatures are not an issue and the East Branch is starving for water.  On the plus side the cloud cover stuck around for most of yesterday, the olives hatched, and the fish ate.  Throw in a few Isonychias and caddis and it was a good day to be on the water.  Today looks good on Accuweather with cooler temps, clouds, light winds, and maybe a shower passing through in the afternoon.  The temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 55 degrees.
