The West Branch flow is already dropping after yesterday’s rain. It is clear enough to fish with just a tinge of color down here. The rain lasted most of the day but the feeders stayed clear until late afternoon. Once the rain stopped we began to drop and clear immediately so we came through that one just fine. Nymphing worked well early and then many people switched to streamers to finish out the day. There is no rain in the forecast today so we should continue to drop. The West Branch is already at a decent level for wading at 1,000 cfs . The air temp will hit 80 today with 5 – 10 mph wind from the North.
