The wind was definitely a factor yesterday until late afternoon. Once it settled down it was actually very pleasant out for the end of October and there were a few fish rising to the left over olives. Today looks much better on paper with winds at 5 mph and gusts to 8 mph. The air temperature should be around 60 with mostly sun. We should see decent Pseudo hatches mid afternoon plus the odd left over Isonychia. We have been seeing a lot of caddis in the evenings. They are mostly flying but occasionally one hits the water while laying eggs and the fish get a chance to eat. If you see a slashing one timer try putting a #16 dark caddis over it.
