They’ve dropped the release from Cannonsville to 401 cfs until further notice.  The low release combined with the hot sunny days has driven some of the water temperatures up significantly.  The ones to watch today are Fish’s Eddy starting off ant 67 degrees and Lordville starting off at 68 degrees this morning.  The West Branch and Upper East Branch are your best bet for fishing temperatures today.  The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 61 degrees this morning and peaked at 66 degrees yesterday afternoon.  Accuweather is calling for cooler temps today in the high 70s with some scattered thunderstorms throughout the day.  The rainfall is supposed to be a little over a 1/2 inch but most of that will soak into the ground.  If the forecast is correct I would expect decent hatches of mostly olives #18 -26, summer stenos, and maybe a few Isonychias.  The bright sun and Yo Yo releases have not been great for the hatches.  Hopefully this change in weather kicks off some decent fishing for the weekend.
