The forecasted thunderstorms never materialized yesterday leaving us with more sun than we anticipated. The hatches came off but the fish seemed hesitant to rise steadily. While people did find steady fish, many saw one and two timers during the afternoon. It varied by location so there was no right answer, just luck. Blind casting isonychias in the riffles worked well for people who didn’t ant to wait for steady fish. Accuweather is calling for air temps in the low 80s today with sun. Unless it changes we do have a 75% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow.
