    To much water is like saying we have to much pitching.

    We need a good ole fashion spill and get some Alewifes into the River.

    I don't think fly fishing is a good fit for you; maybe you should try archeology, I hear there's lots of elbow room in the desert.

    89% and they're dumping water into the West Branch.

    yea i don't really get this, is this in anticipation of major melt/spill action?

    I think so, kinda. Written into the rules is the idea of maintaining "voids" to protect the downstream residents after they experienced biblesque flooding some years ago. Quite controversial. Seems many LIKE voids to protect against hurricanes, but not so much late winter/spring snowmelt and rain(hint: timing is everything when it comes to flows on the D)

    John you hit the nail on the head.It's all about flood mitigation (VOIDS).

    We are going to get more water coming in than going out but it wont last that long,in my opinion unless we get a big rainfall (inches) we wont spill.

    Let the melting begin!

    Don't get excited, it won't last.

    Not excited - just well experienced at this.This morning it was at 2700 and dropping.Now 3740 going up.

    I'll get excited when I have 18/19 inch rainbows sucking in my Paraleps and or Subvaria or maybe Baetis in a few weeks.That would be Blue Quills,Hendricksons and Olives.

    https://waterdata.usgs.gov/ny/nwis/u...cd=00065,00060

    Snow in the mountains,a little rain, warm weather and ain't over over until the fat lady sings.Oh and throw in NJ Fred's secret weapon-Technology.

    BTW I did predict back in November when we where in a drought and the Cannonsville was 17% that we would be fine come spring.

    All is well. Tight Loops and Tight Lines.

    Not going to see alewife unless they let it spill. Bottom releases won't help. The good news is that I did some macroinvertebrate training for some teachers last weekend here in NJ and the Hendricksons still had one instar to complete as we could tell by their lack of size which was confirmed by their wing cases not being totally black. Maybe that hatch will start late April for the Catskills like the good old days, at least on the WB.

    Alewife's are very important to the ecosystem,its ashamed we don't get spills to often.In some circles it is a major concern.(Not having Alewife's in the spring).

    The point of the post was not a spill, it was that the inflow isn't over just yet.More importantly the Reservoirs filled up when many where calling for Armageddon back in November.


    Just for the Record....I only fish with Dries.
