The release from Cannonsville has been dropped again and the flow at Stilesville is 978 cfs.  Not quite where we would like to see it but headed in the right direction.  Although there will still be the normal color in the water it will clear a bit as the flow drops.  Yesterday ended as we predicted with streamers and nymphs early followed by some dry fly fish in the afternoon.  We’re seeing mostly olives with some Heptagenia and Isonychias.  The bushes are full of caddis again.  Today will be cooler hitting 62 degrees with cloud cover.  Wind 10 – 15 mph from the South.
