Well this morning they decided to drop the release on the West Branch. The current release from Cannonsville is 494 cfs “until further notice.”  Last night fished well with a mix of olives, summer stenos, and a few Isonychias.  We actually had a nice olive spinner fall at dark that kept the fish going a little longer than normal.  The day was tough with the bright sun and hot temperatures so nymphing was definitely your best bet for fish.  The Yo Yo releases are getting old.  Cannonsville is currently at 78.9%.  The total NYC Water Supply is 85.8% and the normal capacity for September 3rd is 76.7%.  The temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 56 degrees this morning.
