Joe D getting his clients on some good dry fly action in high water

It seems as if we were spared with the storms this time around. The West and Upper East were both predicted to hit over 5k this morning, and that obviously didn’t happen.   The streamer bite has been exceptionally well with dryfly action mixed in. Fortuneatly the spill is not effecting the fishery as we expected it wouldn’t.  For more information on the train derailment go to The release out of Cannonsville remains at 1500cfs. Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of 70*/61* with T-storms throughout the day.
