Happy Easter!  We had several reports from anglers who fished the lower West Branch and Upper Main Stem.  Most people reported having a decent day fishing streamers.  No one reported any consistent surface activity.  The release from Cannonsville is 374 cfs until further notice.  The weather forecast for today is calling for a high of 42 degrees with NW winds at 10-15 mph.  Light rain in the a.m. will change over to partly cloudy skies in the afternoon.
