The bright sun and warm temperatures have made the daytime fishing tough. Over the last couple of days a lot of the hatching has been pushed to late evening leaving daytime for nymphing and swinging wet flies. We should have some cloud cover today- hopefully it pushes in early. The weather over the weekend looks better with some rain and clouds. Wind looks negligible with gusts under 10 mph. Keep an eye on the water temperatures on the lower Mainstem over the next couple of days. We’ll get through the next few days feeling like July and we should get some cooler weather by early next week.
