The rivers have settled down and everything remains perfectly wadeable this morning. We’ve had a little off and on light rain this morning that should end until later in the afternoon. The air temps have dropped but so fat it’s a comfortable Fall day. It looks to be shaping into a great blue winged olive type of day. The winds have definitely been variable over the last few days but even on the windy days there are still enough leaves on the trees to provide some breaks on the river and the fish seem to be eating well in between the gusts. The West Branch under the 191 Bridge in Hancock is 53 degrees this morning.
