Yesterday’s thunderstorms slid around us here on the lower West Branch. We had some wind and a few drops of rain in the afternoon but overall it was a non factor. There was no pulse from Cannonsville overnight so we are starting off this morning about where we’ve been most of the summer. Small sulphurs and cahills are still hatching during the afternoon in the coldest river sections. The lower river sections have been a mix of olives and cahills towards dark. There are a few caddis around so that might be worth a shot on picky fish. We have some cloud cover this morning with a 50% chance of some precip. The total rainfall should be a negligible .13″. 86 degrees with light and variable wind,
The East Branch at Fishs Eddy, the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, and the Mainstem at Lordville all peaked over 70 degrees yesterday. Give these sections a break until we get cooler temps.
