River Report / Conditions April 8, 2011

Overcast this morning with the temperature just above freezing – hopefully getting to 60F today! It looks like Cannonsville is spilling a little bit, cooling off the upper West Branch – releases should mitigate the amount of spill. Warm weather over the next few days should help get water temps up, and help get the bugs hatching! We have seen Chimmarra caddis and little black stones, but the Baetis vagans are still absent – let’s hope that changes! Here are your flows:
