Another chilly night means the water temperatures continue to stay cool even though the levels are dropping. The air temperatures are starting to rise and we will have some decent wind to contend with this afternoon. The release from Cannonsville remains at 500 cfs so the West Branch and upper Main Stem are both wade and boat friendly. We’re still seeing good numbers of Sulphurs, Isonychia, Stenos and Light Blue Winged Olives.
