September fished well overall  and we hate to see it go.  They could not let the month end without changing the release from Cannonsville one more time.  The release has been cut a small bit to 993 cfs.  We’re looking at a much cooler air temp only hitting 60 degrees.  Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South.  We may even see some light rain fall.  It definitely feels like Fall has arrived.  The Mainstem and East Branch are still the best bets for wading.  The early clouds could push some olives earlier than we’re used to seeing them.  Heptagenia spinners are mixed with the isonychias towards dark.  Streamers were really productive over the weekend and that should continue with the higher flow on the West Branch.
