The Stilesville gauge looks off so the release is steady at 450 cfs bringing the flow at Hale Eddy to 575 cfs.  Good for floating and wading.  We’re starting off at 48 degrees this morning but should hit 70 by late afternoon.  The wind will be up a bit at 10 -15 from the North so adjust your plan accordingly.  Nymphing has worked well during the day although some people are finding fish eating olives even in the sunshine.  Most of the olives have been coming off in the late afternoon mixed with a few isos and cahills.  There are tricos out again this morning but on these cold mornings they sometimes fall later than you expect so watch the tail outs once the sun hits the water.
