The dry fly fishing we’ve been waiting for has begun. Yesterday seemed to be the first day the fish were happy and really eating on top. We had a good mix of blue quills and hendricksons out there in the afternoon. It took a while to get going but once the water warmed up enough things started to happen. We have warm temperatures ahead so it should just get better and better over the next week. The rivers are still dropping back and we’re seeing more people wading even if it’s along the edges. We do have some rain coming this afternoon with a shot if .43″ as a possibility. So far we are seeing a light shower and everything looks fine. The greatest possibility of receiving the rain comes after dark. After tonight the rest of the week look s fairly dry with a few light showers and warm air temperatures.
