Today looks like a good fishing day with warm weather this morning and 75% chance of thunderstorms in the evening. Hopefully the cloud cover increases during the late afternoon and the predicted rain looks light- perfect for Blue Winged Olives and Isonychias. The Sulphurs are still going strong on the Upper West Branch offering decent daytime activity and the Pseudos are hatching on the mid to lower river in the evening. This has been a really great July so far with temperatures at Lordville staying in the low 60s and the lower West Branch is starting off in the 50s every morning. The West Branch is 57 degrees this morning under the Hancock Bridge and Lordville peaked yesterday at 64 degrees!
