Let the Yo Yo release continue.  The release from Cannonsville is 713 cfs this morning.  Hale Eddy will continue to climb for a while and should settle in the mid 700 range- until they change the release again. And again.  Otherwise it’s turning out to be a normal late Summer / early Fall day.  The fog is burning off and it looks like we’ll have some sun today with air temps in the low 70s.  The nights have been very cool so definitely bring a fleece for the evening fishing.  Nymphing will be your best bet during the day but I would stay below Hale Eddy.  If you want to fish the Upper West Branch check it out first for rafts of floating slime due to the increased release.  It should filter out by the mid  West Branch and Upper Mainstem.  The lower West and Upper Main continue to have hatches of olives mixed with a few Summer Stenos.  Look at the slower pools mid morning for Tricos.  The water temperature under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 59 degrees this morning.
