The worst of the rain went south of us yesterday and cleared out by early afternoon. The West Branch was clear and only had a small bump in level. However, the release from Cannonsville has been increased to 1,083 cfs this morning. Be careful if wading the West Branch. For a lower flow alternative, try the Beaverkill – the rain has kept it in good shape. There’s a chance of thundershowers in the forecast today so don’t forget your rain jacket. We’re still seeing a mix of caddis, sulphurs, cahills and olives with and occasional Iso mixed. Bring your spinners for the evening!
