No change in the Cannonsville release so the flow at Stilesville is 863 cfs.  There are some places to wade at the current level.  We can’t get data to pull up for most of the gauges this morning but the flows are dropping so slowly on most rivers it doesn’t really matter.  We shouldn’t see any significant rain over the next couple of days so the fishing shouldn’t change much either.  Most people are still fishing nymphs or streamers early in the day and switching to dry flies in the afternoon.  Olives, Heptagenia, and some Isonychias make up the bulk of the mayflies.  The bushes are full of caddis.

What’s Hatching:
Olive Sulphur – #18 – 20 – Heptagenia hebe
Light Cahill – #14 – Stenocron spp. , E. invaria
Slate Drake – #12-2xl – 12 – Isonychia bicolor
Tiny Blue Wing Olive – #20 – 24 – Pseudocloeon sp.
Blue Wing Olives – #16 – 20 – D. deficiens, lata
Light Blue Wing Olives - #16 – 20 – E. cornutella, attenuata
Tan Caddis – #16 – 18 – Hydropsyche sp.
