The release from Cannonsville was increased to 600 cfs. The spill is 948 cfs. The East Branch flow at Harvard is dropping and hit 799 cfs. People are finding a few spots to wade on the West Branch and Mainstem and more should open up on the East Branch. The Beaverkill and Willowemoc are in great shape for wading. We’ve been dealing with bluebird conditions for a few days now. That will generally push the hatches later in to the afternoon. It’s been absolutely great spinner conditions. Hopefully we see some caddis in mid day sun. Hendricksons, apple caddis, and blue quills are around in decent numbers on some river sections, There are March Browns but so far they’ve been spread out like they tend to be.
Today will be warmer hitting 76 degrees. We may (hopefully) see some afternoon clouds. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North.
